Knjiga "Uvod u spektroskopiju za astronome" , Tijana Prodanović

Textbook "Introduction to spectroscopy for astronomers", Tijana Prodanović

Astronomija je specifična nauka koja, za razliku od drugih naučnih disciplina, predmet  svog istraživanja ne može da ispituje u laboratoriji, već se oslanja skoro isključivo na ono što vidimo. Međutim, svetlost astronomskih objekata krije u sebi obilje informacija o nastanku, evoluciji i strukturi tih objekata. Spektroskopija predstavlja način da te tajne koje u sebi krije emitovana svetlost i otključamo.  Iz ovoga je jasno zašto spektroskopija kao naučna metoda predstavlja osnovni alat savremene astrofizike. Ova knjiga predstavlja  elementarni uvod u ovu metodu, čije je poznavanje bitno kako profesionalnim astronomima i astrofizičarima, tako i svim ljubiteljima astronomije koji žele malo dublje da ispitaju suštinu objekata koje posmatraju.

Book "Postcards from the Edge of the Universe"

"Postcards from the Edge of the Universe" represents the antology of selected topics in modern astronomy. The book is written in a popular, easy to understand way, and is perfect for everyone who finds astronomy interesting and would like to read more about the great beyond. It represents a collection of featured articles writen by 24 astronomers from all around the world (myself being one of them) who were brought together by the Cosmic Diary, one of the cornerstone projects of International Year of Astronomy 2009. More about this book you can read at its official Postcards from the Edge of the Universe homepage

Research Interests

My research interests include predominantly topics in nuclear and particle astrophysics:

Science Communication

Recently I have become more interested and involved in science communication.


A project that really got me started in science communication was the FameLab competition where the goal is to find new faces of science among young people working in science. This project/competition was held in 10 nations separately, Serbian FameLab being one of them. Following that, national winners went on to have international FameLab competition, where I won the 2nd place, with my 3 min presentation on northern lights which you can check out here.

International Year of Astronomy 2009

As a part of IYA2009 teher was a national (Serbia) version of the project She Is An Astronomer project ("Ona je astronom"), which consted of blogging, but where bloggers are women astronomers, and I was one of them. Since the International Your of Astronomy is behind us, the blog is not very active now, but still from time to time there is an interesting text there to read so check it out!

Public Lectures and Activities

Important part of science communication is of course going out there and getting your hands dirty so I tend to do a lot of public lectures in schools (both elementary and high), astronomical societies, cultural centers, science festivals (in Belgrade and Novi Sad), at events like Reserchs' Night etc. Moreover, I also try to help others improve on their lecturing skills so I wrote a small guide as a starting point to giving good lectures which was published in (and appeared on the front page of!) Communicating Astronomy With the Public Journal. So if you'd like to see a popular science lecture on astronomy in your city or institution, just drop me an email and I'll be happy to come! :)
