Biography

Anita Šalić, PhD was born on 1984 in Banja Luka. She graduated from General secondary school in Zagreb. In 2003, she enrolled in studies of Biotechnology and Molecular Biotechnology at the Faculty of Food Technology and Biotechnology, University of Zagreb. She graduated in 2009 with a BSc in Biotechnology and another in Molecular Biotechnology. Since 2009 till 2022 she was working in the Department of Reaction Engineering and Catalysis at the Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology, University of Zagreb (Faculty) as a scientific assistant. In 2009, she enrolled postgraduate study Chemical Engineering at same Faculty. She graduated in 2015 and received her PhD in area of Technical Science in the scientific field of Chemical Engineering. In 2023 she was elected assistant professor at the Faculty, Department of Thermodynamics, Mechanical Engineering and Energy, Department of Process Engineering, Laboratory of Measurements, Automation and Regulation.

During her research work at the Faculty, she has co-authored 37 original scientific papers, 11 review papers, 1 professional paper, 2 papers in other journals and 4 book chapters. She has actively participated in several national and international scientific conferences where she has delivered 69 presentations (three invited). According to WoS, her papers have been cited 427 times with an h-index 13.

She co-edited of 3 proceedings (two international and one domestic conference) and was a member of the scientific and/or organizing committee of four international and three domestic conferences. In 2012, she spent three months at the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, University of Maribor, Slovenia.

For her work so far, she received the Young Chemical Engineer Award represented by the Croatian Society of Chemical Engineers and Technologists for distinguished scientific contribution in the field of chemical engineering in 2014 and Annual Award of the Society of University Teachers and Other Scientists in Zagreb for the Young Scientists and Artists in 2014. In 2017 she receives recognition as one of the winners of the “Influential Croatian Women” Award in the science category from the Network of Croatian Women. In 2019 she received the Croatian Annual Award for Science for young scientist in the field of technical sciences. In 2021 she was awarded with the Ivan Plotnikov Prize which is awarded to the best young scientist of the Faculty.

She is a member of the Croatian Society of Chemical Engineers and Technologists, the Society of University Teachers and Other Scientists in Zagreb, and the European Society for Applied Biocatalysis. She is a member of the Review Editor Board of Microfluidic Engineering and Process Intensification, a section of Frontiers in Chemical Engineering, and a member of the Editorial Board of the journal Kemija u industriji.

 

Anita Šalić is mother of three children.
