In November 2018, Branka joined the CIO team to lead the development and implementation of the enterprise-wide Data Strategy for NATS; working with a range of colleagues from across the business. This led to Branka becoming Director of Analytics, leading a team of 80+ analysts including a Data Science team focused on the implementation of advanced analytics and AI/ML. Branka’s analytics team is responsible for enhanced data-driven customer insights, tools, and services. The team brings together the data analytics functions and delivers insight and data-driven solutions to NATS operation, corporate functions, and customers around the world.

Branka holds a PhD in air traffic management from Imperial College London (UK), MSc in aeronautical science from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (USA) and MEng in air transport engineering from the University of Belgrade (Serbia). She is also a Chartered Engineer.
