Zoran B. Djordjevic, PhD

Senior Enterprise Architect
Zoran B. Djordjevic graduated with honors from the department of electrical engineering at the University of Belgrade in 1976. He received his master's in 1980 and his PhD in 1984, both from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. After a brief period as a design engineer at a biotech company in Cambridge, he returned to Belgrade where he worked as a senior scientist in the Institute of Nuclear Studies in Vinca, Belgrade. There, he pursued studies of random structures and networks. In the early 1990s, Djordjevic moved to the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, where he designed a large database containing properties of radioactive streams from all US Department of Energy sites and multi-component glasses for safe storage of nuclear wastes. He has been interested and involved in the design of systems for processing and analysis of large data sets since. Over the years, his interests have shifted towards the techniques for processing, searching, storing, and retrieving natural language samples, applications of machine learning techniques, and neural networks. He has taught computer science, physics, and mathematics courses at Boston University's Metropolitan College; the Harvard University Extension School; Clark University; the University of Massachusetts, Boston; and the Catholic University of America.
