Ronelle Alexander has recently retired after 39 years on the faculty of the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of California, Berkeley (UCB). Prior to that she taught at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

Her primary research interests are South Slavic (especially Bulgarian) dialectology, South Slavic and Balkan folklore (especially the recordings in the Milman Parry Collection at Harvard), and the sociolinguistics of standard languages vs. dialects. She has carried out extensive field research in rural areas of Bulgaria, Macedonia, and southeastern Serbia, and is the director of the digital humanities project Bulgarian Dialectology as Living Tradition.
