Other Activities
In addition to the activities in student instruction, actively working as a scientific researcher in all the projects of the Department of Erosion and Torrents Control ( now Department of Ecological Engineering in Soil and Water Resources Protection of Faculty of Forestry, Belgrade University. In the course of research activities dealt with following issues:
- Soil erosion,
- Erosion and torrent control,
- Sediment transport in the torrents,
- Runoff regime in the small mountainous watersheds,
- Sediment management,
- Effects of erosion and torrent control works,
- Ecological effects of soil erosion and sediment transport.

Until now published over 140 scientific (journal and conferences) papers and about 30 professional papers; directing or collaborating in 20 case studies and 50 projects in the field of erosion and torrent control and watershed management. In addition I have published two textbooks for the University (Faculty of Forestry) and one for High school.

Attended some specialization courses and participated in the following study tours:
- Tbilisi, Georiga, 15 days in June 1982 visiting at the Institute of Hydroengineering and meliorations in Zakavkazie Scientific-research Institute;
