A Ph.D. candidate and a research associate at the Laboratory for Bioarchaeology (Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade). He is currently focused on exploring the variability of knapped stone tools and anthropomorphic figurines from the Late Neolithic sites of the Central Balkans. The variability of these artifact classes is observed through the lens of the cultural transmission theory, with a goal of reconstructing the social dynamics during this period. Other areas of his research include the application of quantitative methods in archaeological research, radiocarbon dating, experimental archaeology, etc
