Dimitrij Mlekuž (1970) graduated from the Faculty of Arts, the University of Ljubljana in 2000 where he also did his Ph.D. degree "Trajectories of Mesolithic and Neolithic landscapes of the North Dinarides" (2005). In 2002 he became employed as a junior researcher, in 2005 as a research associate and between 2007 and 2009 as an academic assistant at the Department of Archaeology, Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana. In 2009 he took a one year Marie Curie post­doctoral research post at the Ghent University (Belgium), where he researched integration and modeling of archaeological prospection using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and the applications of autonomous mobile platforms in archaeological prospection. Since 2010 he has been working at the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage of Slovenia (ZVKDS). Here, he introduced lidar survey in the practice of heritage protection and helped set up the procedures for integration of preventive archaeological research within GIS. Since 2011 he has worked as a (part-time) research associate at the Department of Archaeology, Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana. In 2009 he earned the title "assistant professor" (University of Ljubljana) and "conservator" (Institute for the protection of Cultural Heritage of Slovenia). His teaching experience includes the field schools ("Archaeological Methodology") and courses in "Archaeology of Neolithic and Eneolithic". He currently teaches "Spatial and Landscape Archaeology" on the undergraduate level and courses in "Remote sensing and GIS in archaeology", "Archaeological interpretation" and "Archaeological epistemology and research methodology" on the graduate level at the Department of Archaeology (University of Ljubljana). He taught GIS and landscape archaeology courses at several international summer schools (Slovenia, Portugal, Republic of Macedonia, Croatia). He regularly contributes to the international conferences, also with invited lectures. His research interests include landscape archaeology, theoretical archaeology, archaeological methods, an archaeology of human­animal relations, Neolithic archaeology and humanistic computing.
