ZRC SAZU - Institute of Archaeology

Graduated in 1974 from archaeology and ancient Greek at the University of Ljubljana, spent the next two years as a postgraduate student in Greece (at the British School at Athens); Ph.D. in 1989. Since 1987 (after two years as assistant professor in the Department of Classical Philology at the University of Ljubljana), she has had a research post at the Institute of Archaeology of the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (ZRC SAZU), from 2001 as a senior research fellow.

Her main research topics are Latin epigraphy and ancient Greek historical and geographical literary sources for the history of the eastern Adriatic, south-eastern Alpine areas, and Illyricum, as well as Roman religion and mythology of these regions. She is currently working on the corpus of the Roman inscriptions from Emona and on Roman inscriptions from Siscia, Andautonia, and Aquae Balizae (Croatian project coordinated by Branka Migotti from the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts at Zagreb: Roman funerary stones of northern Croatia: from the quarry to the graveyard). Her research is also dedicated to Strabo, the Augustan period Greek historian and geographer.

She is a member of the editorial boards of Slovenian and foreign journals (Arheološki vestnik, Keria, Aquileia Nostra, Miscellanea Hadriatica et Mediterranea). She has been involved in several national and international research projects, notably in the EAGLE project (The Europeana Network of Greek and Latin Epigraphy, 2013–2016). She is a member of the Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies (London) and Association Internationale d'Epigraphie Grecque et Latine (a member of the bureau 2002–2007 and of the steering committee 2013–2017). She is a corresponding member of the Austrian and German Archaeological Institutes.
