Slavica Ražić graduated from the University of Belgrade, Faculty of Pharmacy, where she obtained the title of MS. For PhD at the Faculty of Chemistry - Department of Analytical Chemistry (2000). Since 2012, Slavica Ražić has been a full professor and Chair of the Department of Analytical Chemistry at the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Belgrade (2003-2007 and 2022- ). She supervised a large number of bachelor and master theses and was a member of dissertation defence and election committees in Serbia, Spain, Greece, Austria and Macedonia.

Slavica is the Elected Member of the European Chemical Society (EuChemS) Executive Board and a member of the Steering Committee of the Division of Analytical Chemistry (DAC-EuChemS). She is also a Titular member of the Analytical Chemistry Division of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (ACD-IUPAC) and its representative in the Interdivisional Committee on Green Chemistry for Sustainable Development. From 2012 to 2016 she was Vice President of the Serbian Chemical Society (SCS).

Academic awards and honours: Letter of appreciation from the Faculty of Pharmacy for the successful promotion of the Faculty and the outstanding results in scientific and research work (2023). Honorary Member of SCS for exceptional contributions (2017), Meritorious Member of SCS for activities and contributions (2008), Annual Award of the Belgrade Chamber of Commerce for the best PhD thesis in 2001 (2001).

Slavica Ražić is a member of the international advisory boards of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry (Springer), Advances in Sample Preparation (Elsevier) and Journal of Research in Pharmacy. She is editor and reviewer for more tahn 50 international journals. Slavica has been chair/member of scientific and organising committees of numerous international and national conferences.

Slavica's current research interests lie in the development of analytical methods for environmental and natural food samples, assisted by chemometric methods of analysis and in line with the principles of green and sustainable chemistry. Particular attention is paid to unconventional, environmentally friendly solvents (natural, deep eutectic solvents, ionic liquids, supercritical fluids, subcritical water, etc.) and environmentally friendly extractions in sample preparation as well as the physico-chemical characterization of the extracts obtained using appropriate separation and spectroscopic analysis techniques.
