Curriculum Vitae
I’m a Full Professor in Economics at University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Economics and member of Management Board at Slovene Research Agency. I earned my PhD in Economics in 2003 at Faculty of Economics, University of Ljubljana. During my study I spent a year as a visiting scholar at CERGE-EI, Charles University, in Prague. In 2004 I got IMF/GDN research grant and spent 5 weeks at IMF headquarters in Washington, DC. In 2007 I was awarded by University’s Award for young fellows for extraordinary achievements in teaching and research. In the period of 2009-2010 I was a Fulbright scholar at University of California, Davis. In last 15 years I published several papers in refereed journals (Journal of Business Ethics, International Journal of Manpower, Journal of International Business Studies, Review of Comparative Economics and others) discussing the problems of corporate governance, enterprise restructuring, firms’ labor demand, labor market institutions and youth unemployment in transition economies analyzing firm and individual level data (registry and survey data). In last decade I participated at several international conferences. In the period of 2013 – 2015 I served as a member of EALE Executive Committee. I was a coordinator of two GDN projects and member of the research team of several research projects, financed by Slovene government, PHARE program and European Commission.
