Dijana Bogunovic

Optical Engineer
Masters in Optics, PhD in Physics

Dijana achieved her PhD in Physics by working on tunable waveguide Bragg gratings in electro-optic polymer thin films. She worked on assembly and testing of optical components for MAROON-X and MINERVA-Australis high resolution spectrographs and testing of PFC lenses  for WEAVE project (William Herschel  Telescope).
