Working as a Head of Research in several world-renowned companies, he has been helping corporations and governments understand, model, and quantify various social complexities and deliver positive outcomes. In april this year, tempted by the rise and expansion of decentralise finance (DeFi) applications, Mihajlo has actively joined crypto space and successfully engaged in various forms of yield farming on BSC, Avalanche, Matic, Terra and Solana.
