My formal education as an archaeologist and a fashion (costume) designer provides me with a unique set of skills, both as a scientist and an artist. I have worked for four years as a researcher at the University of Oxford, and before that as a museum curator for two years. I have tought two courses at Oxford Brookes University, and worked as an assistant editor and typesetter for a publishing company. I am a multitasker keen on getting involved in many projects at the same time. My PhD, published as a book, has recently been awarded a special recognition by the Croatian Museum Association. My husband Berislav Buca is an Assistant Professor at the Niels Bohr Institute and we both take care of our cat Pulci.
