Biography

I was born in what is today Croatia, got my diploma in Classics at Belgrade University (Serbia), and a PhD from Heidelberg University. Before joining UVA I taught at Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich for a year, Ruprecht-Karls University of Heidelberg for three years, and spent a decade at Durham University in the North East of England. In my free time, I enjoy walks with my dog, Mr Miyagi.
