Predrag Radović

Paleontologist

Curator

 

Summary

Predrag Radović (1984) graduated from the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Belgrade with a bachelor’s degree in archaeology (2009). He earned his master’s degree in geology, module Palaeontology, at the Faculty of Mining and Geology of the same university (2015). He enrolled in doctoral studies at the same group (2017). From 2011 he worked as a curator of the National Museum in Kraljevo, where he became the curator of the Natural History Collection in 2015, and since 2018 he has been the head of the Group for Geology and Biology, which was formed in that year. He has completely arranged the Natural History Collection dividing it into several subcollections. He is the author and co-author of several exhibitions, workshops for chidren from primary and secondary schools and lectures held in the National Museum and other institutions. The focus of his work is on scientific research in the fields of palaeoanthropology, palaeontology of vertebrates and bioarchaeology. He stands out by his papers published in highly ranked journals as well as by his participation in a series of scientific conferences in Serbia and abroad. His work has been recognized by the award for young researcher. Within the scientific fields he deals with, he has participated in a series of field investigations, on the territories of Kraljevo and Raška and in a wider territory in Serbia. The year 2020 is marked by his transfer to the Department of Archaeology at the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade, but he still partly manages the Group for Biology and Geology of the National Museum Kraljevo.
