Anja Ragolič studied archaeology (graduated in 2010), the German language with literature, as well as the Latin language with literature (graduated in 2016) at the University of Ljubljana. In 2010, she obtained a junior research post at the Institute of Archaeology of the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (ZRC SAZU) to complete her PhD study in epigraphy under the supervision of Marjeta Šašel Kos. Her thesis Roman Civil and Military Tombstones from Poetovio (Pannonia Superior) was defended in June 2015. 

In 2015, she became a research assistant at the Institute of Archaeology. She was involved in the EAGLE Project as one of the content providers for the Epigraphic Database Roma, having been responsible for the Roman inscribed monuments from Emona and its territory (2013-2016). Her main research interests are focused on the Roman inscriptions of Emona (10th Italian Region), Celeia (Noricum), and two towns in the province of Pannonia, Neviodunum and especially Poetovio (present-day Ptuj).
