Dr Viltanioti holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy and a D. E. A. from the University of Brussels (Université Libre de Bruxelles). In 2014 she was appointed to one-year post-doctoral research fellowship in Oxford to work on the Power Structuralism in Ancient Ontologies project, while also being an honorary member of the F.R.S.-FNRS and a Research Associate of the project LíAntre des Nymphes de Porphyre directed by Tiziano Dorandi (Centre Jean Pépin, CNRS URP 76).

Iriniís doctoral dissertation is on theories of numbers in ancient Pythagoreanism and in Plato. During her graduate studies, she was the recipient of two scholarships of the A. S. Onassis Foundation (2005-2006 and 2006-2010). In 2010, Irini received the Van Buuren award; in 2011 she received a Wiener-Anspach Foundation scholarship, and a F.R.S.-FNRS post-doctoral research fellowship. From 2011 to 2014, she has been a Research Associate working on the Power Structuralism in Ancient Ontologies project with the support of the two above foundations.

In recent years, Irini has published in a variety of areas on ancient thought. Her monograph Líharmonie des Sirènes de pythagorisme ancien à Platon is forthcoming in August 2015 (Walter de Gruyter).
