Luka Sikic

Asistant professor of Statistics

Faculty of Croatian Studies


I am a professor of statistics at the Faculty of Cratian Studies in Zagreb. My research interests include Data Science, Big Data, macroeconomics, econometrics and applied quantitative methods. These days I`m working on several new university courses like Big Data in social sciences and Natural Language Processing in communicology research and also freelancing on two Data Science projects.

I`m enthusiastic about academic research in economics and data science, teaching, technology and acquiring new quantitative skills. I like all data related things like (beautiful) visualizations, models and ecosystems…In my free time I enjoy sports, ice baths and consume lots of veggies, coffee, and computational power…
