Research interests

Graduated in geology in 2008 at Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb. Since 2009 employed as research assistant at Ivan Rakovec Institute of Paleontology ZRC SAZU and is enrolled in PhD programme at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering, University of Ljubljana. For his PhD thesis he is studying Jurassic and Cretaceous stratigraphy of deep-water basins in the Dinarides. So far he has studied the Bled Basin in north-western Slovenia and Guevgueli ophiolite complex in Macedonia.
