Anastasija Pesic

Anastasija Pesic studied mathematics at the University of Belgrade, Serbia. Continuing her studies in Germany as part of the Berlin Mathematical School, she completed her M.Sc. at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in 2021 with the topic of Variational Analysis and Large Deviations Principle for Membrane Models. Presently, Anastasija is pursuing her Ph.D. at the Humboldt University, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Barbara Zwicknagl in the department of Applied Analysis. Her research project is part of RTG DAEDALUS.

Anastasija’s research centres around Calculus of Variations, specifically in its application to Biological membranes. She employs variational techniques, such as Gamma-convergence and scaling laws, to analyse minimizers of nonlocal, nonconvex functionals linked to the formation of lipid rafts in cellular membranes. Anastasija’s work is driven by a genuine interest in applying analytical techniques to understand complexities within the biological context. She is always looking for interdisciplinary collaborations, so feel free to reach out!
