She was born in Belgrade in 1983. She graduated from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Belgrade in 2007 (the five-year program), where she defended her doctoral thesis titled Upper extremity tremor suppression system based on functional electrical stimulation out-of-phase with tremor in 2011. Between 2008 and 2012, she worked at the company Tecnalia Serbia in Belgrade and was responsible for developing devices and methods for rehabilitation of upper extremities after injury of the central or peripheral nervous system using surface electrical stimulation. She was elected an assistant professor at the State University of Novi Pazar in 2012. Since 2013, she has been involved in teaching at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Belgrade (Biomedical Engineering). She was elected a Research Fellow in 2015.

Fields of interest: biomedical engineering, technology for rehabilitation and assistance to the disabled, functional electrical stimulation 

Lana Popović Maneski is a reviewer of the Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering, Journal of  Electrical & Computer Engineering and Biomedical Signal Processing & Control.

She has been employed at the Institute of Technical Sciences of SASA since 2012..
