After moving to the UK, she joined the group of Professor Judith Howard at the Durham University Department of Chemistry as a post doctoral research associate. She was the recipient of the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre Prize for Younger Scientist Award for 2003. In 2005, she took up an independent RCUK Academic Fellowship. She was appointed a Lecturer in Structural/Materials Chemistry in 2009, promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2011, Reader in 2015 and Professor in 2019.

Ivana was the Chair (2011 - 2014) of the Physical Crystallography Group of the British Crystallographic Association and the Structural Condensed Matter Physics Group of the Institute of Physics. She has served on the Diffraction peer review panel for Diamond Light Source (2010-2014) and on the ISIS Diffraction peer review panel (2015-2017), the RSC Materials Chemistry Division Council (2016_2019), and is currently a member of the RSC Faraday Discussions Standing Committee and the IUCr Commission on Powder Diffraction. She was an invited visiting researcher at ANSTO for 6 months (2015) and a short-term Visiting Scientist at the University of Sydney in 2017. She is a co-organiser and lecturer on the internationally-renowned Powder Diffraction & Rietveld Refinement School and a Visiting Professor at the University of Belgrade.
