Dragana Ranković (ex Todorović) was born on October 7, 1973. in Valjevo. In the 1992/93 school year, she enrolled at the Faculty of Mathematics, University of Belgrade, majoring in Theoretical Mathematics and Applications, and graduated in September 1996. She obtained master degree in the field of Mathematical Analysis - Differential Equations at the Faculty of Mathematics, University of Belgrade, in 2001 (supervisor Lj. Protić). At the same Faculty, she obtained her PhD in 2011, under the mentorship of professor Nebojsa Lazetic.

Dr. Dragana Ranković participates in the realization of theoretical and practical classes within the Integrated Academic Studies at the mandatory course Mathematics and at the elective course Application of Information Technology in Pharmacy.

Actively participates in the realization of students’ scientific research activities within the activities of the Center for Scientific Research Work of Students of the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Belgrade. Also, she is the mentor and member of the committees for undergraduate thesis.

Dr. Dragana Ranković's scientific research work is in the field of the theory of dynamical systems and its application to various mathematical models. Her work is primarily based on the analysis of dynamical systems determined by ordinary nonlinear differential equations and differential equations with time delay.

So far, she has published 12 original research papers, published in international and national journals.
