About Me


I’m an Assistant Professor at University of Novi Sad, Faculty of Philosophy. I completed my sociology PhD in 2019 and my main research interests are centered around applying statistical, computational and machine learning methods. In 2023, I was a Fulbright Visting Scholar at University of Virginia.

Currently I’m the maintainer of transforEmotion R package for sentiment analysis for text, image and video using transformer models (>5k installs on CRAN).

My Erdős number is 4 (A. Tomašević – M. Mitrović Danuklov – G. Caldarelli – B. Bollobás – P. Erdős).
