Dr. Mirjana Roksandic is a biological anthropologist whose main research topics include Pleistocene hominin evolution in Europe and mortuary ritual among sedentary and semi-sedentary archaeological hunter-gatherers. Roksandic obtained her PhD from Simon Fraser University.

She has two active international projects: the first is in Serbia focusing on hominins excavated in Paleolithic caves, and the other in Cuba where she is working on questions of mortuary practice and ritual continuity.
