After graduation in 2008, Miljana was working as a freelance architect / designer on different interior and furniture design assignments. She was involved in various projects of a different scale with focus on use of wood, in such a way exploring its properties through practical tasks. She is currently employed as an assistant in a field of Wood Products Design, on Furniture and Interior Design courses, while at the same time working on her PhD thesis on properties of wood façade cladding. She lives and works in Belgrade, Serbia.

Her interests stand half way between architecture and furniture design. She believes that products can emerge from a specific practical need (the same way buildings do) but that, at the end of a process, an object must be able to provoke an emotional reaction in people in order to have success.
