MBL Balkans Team

Boris Stanković

President of the organising committee 

Boris is currently a second-year student who studies Statistics, Actuarial and Financial Mathematics at the Mathematical Faculty in Belgrade. He finished the first three semesters of his studies with perfect grades. His biggest passion is organizing mathematical events, especially those related to education. Boris is constantly fighting to improve the educational system and mathematical community in the Balkans and is always happy to help any talented kid who approaches him. His dream is to start his own company that will give the most talented young people a chance to stay in the Balkans and apply their maths knowledge to solve challenging real-world problems

Andrej Madunić

Vice-president of the organising committee   

Andrej is a first-year psychology student at the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Sarajevo. Apart from his passion for history, science and sports, he is an avid education activist, which is probably a topic you can get him started on at any time of day. He loves long and heated debates on any topic, so if you are bored, you can always challenge him to a discussion.


Rastko Stanković

Vice-president of the organising committee   

Rastko is a senior year student at 2nd gymnasium Sarajevo. He loves solving Olympic problems, especially combinatorics and number theory. His biggest passion is participating in or organising mathematical camps. If you ever want to show someone a cool math trick, go talk to him!


Adi Hujić

Vice-president of the organising committee   

Currently studying second year of Maths and Computer Science at the Faculty of Science at Sarajevo University. Spent the last year teaching in the Druga gimnazija Maths club. Besides being passionate about maths, especially combinatorics, he loves watching and playing basketball, football and chess.


Andrej Krčmar

Vice-president of the organising committee   

Currently a high school sophomore at Gimnazija Banja Luka. Highly passionate about maths, especially combinatorics. Likes to think he is good at solving olympiad problems. Other interests include music (especially rock) and playing chess. Always looking to learn something new. Likes many sports, but is not particularly good at any.


Lara Jana Pačak

Logistics Coordinator

A second-year physics student, actively involved in science popularization through STEM programs, collaborating with NASA, and playing vital roles at the Scientific Society “Vladimir Prelog.” Infused with a love for the vibrant shades of purple and the sweetness of raspberries, she dreams of witnessing the enchanting Northern Lights in Iceland. Her laughter from a kilometer away reflects the hope to contribute positively to the camp atmosphere. Eagerly awaiting mathematical praise, she envisions a reaction similar to Newton’s Third Law in physics—where her support for mathematics elicits positive words about physics in return.

Tatjana Novaković

HR Coordinator

Currently studying second year of Astronomy and astrophysics at the Mathematical Faculty in Belgrade. She is involved in researching the nature of gravity through the study of stellar streams. In the Erasmus student network in Belgrade, she is the Education manager. Besides being passionate about applying maths in physics, she likes to travel and read classics. Hopes to hear some nice words about physics from mathematicians during the MBL Balkans 2024.

Asja Ćatić

PR Coordinator

A senior at the Second gymnasium in Sarajevo. Asja loves solving problems and did a lot of competitive maths growing up. She also teaches younger students at her school’s Maths Club. Not much of a sportsperson but she really enjoys skiing. Hit her up if you’re organizing a dance party!

Aleksandar Brkić

Member of the organising committee

Currently studying as a freshman at the Faculty of electrical engineering at the University of Belgrade. As much as he loves maths, especially analysis, he is also passionate about machine learning and programming, science (both in general and cognitive), chess and rowing. He also has a fondness for puzzles, board games, and debating.

Vasilije Ivanović

Member of the organising committee

Student of Statistics and Financial Mathematics at Mathematical Faculty, University of Belgrade and Computer Science at Computing Faculty, University Union. Plays water polo for the Water polo Singiudunum in the Senior Serbian League. Huge combinatorics and probability enthusiast. Always tries to understand all the processes that are happening to him and the reason behind them. Beginner in Machine learning but determined to master it.  Enjoys reading books that dive into deep and complex psychological and philosophical topics. Lives for those moments when he inspires others in any way, and the day when he will wield a real purple lightsaber.

Marko Dimitrić

Member of the organising committee

A first-year Mathematics and Computer Science student at University of Oxford, he draws wisdom from the legacies of Jaynes, Shannon, Pearl, and Philomena Cunk. Inspired by the groundbreaking insights of these intellectual giants, his interest lies in understanding how mathematics guides decision-making and information processing. Put plainly, he likes processing information. This naturally extends to interest in overthinking and AI. In moments of procrastination, you might find him delving into philosophy, cognitive science, or indulging in the endless scroll of social media. He also tried to do other things in life, finding success on occasion. If asked questions, he might provide answers.


Ilma Čeljo

Member of the organising committee

Ilma is a senior year highschool student at the Second gymnasium in Sarajevo. She is passionate about maths and has participated in many mathematical camps. She also went to EGMO a couple of times. Apart from maths, she enjoys hiking the mountain ranges in Bosnia, so if you are looking for hiking suggestions feel free to talk to her. Also, like many other Bosnians, she is always up to a game of table tennis.

Ervin Macić

Co-president of the mathematical committee

Finished high school in Sarajevo and now works part-time at two start-ups. Has a love for applied mathematics and machine learning in particular. He works on AI safety which he finds to be the best way for him to have a positive impact with his life. He also loves having conversations about anything that you feel strongly about.

Jovan Vuković

Co-president of the mathematical committee

Jovan currently studies maths at the Mathematical Faculty in Belgrade. He participated in the IMO two times winning a silver medal in 2022 and a bronze medal in 2020. He is mostly interested in number theory, but he likes other branches of maths well, most notably Galois Theory and Extremal Graph Theory which he conducted some research on recently. Jovan is a big fan of strategy games and a passionate table tennis and volleyball player.
