Jelena Grujić did her undergraduate in physics at the Belgrade University in Serbia. She was always interested into interdisciplinary research which she first stared to explore by working on complex network with Prof. Bosiljka Tadić from Jožef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia. Later she did PhD in game theory at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in Spain under supervision of Anxo Sánchez and Jose Cuesta. During here PhD she conducted laboratory experiment with human subjects playing Prisoner dilemma on a virtual lattice. In combination with analytical work, she tried to understand if the spatial structure actually promotes cooperation in human societies.
At the moment she is a postdoc working with Henrik Jensen on the CONGAS project. Her works on Tangled Nature model and well as trying to apply complex networks on the real world data.
