RESEARCH INTERESTS:

BIOGRAPHY:
In April 2013, I graduated with a PhD from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. In my doctoral dissertation I examined the cultural and cognitive aspects of grammatical gender in Modern Greek conversation (published with Brill, 2014). In May 2013, I took up a two year Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Language and Culture Research Centre, James Cook University, to examine the Greek language spoken by immigrant communities in Far North Queensland. The findings of my research are presented in the monograph Modern Greek in Diaspora: An Australian Perspective (published with Palgrave Pivot, 2018). I am currently teaching courses in Sociolinguistics, Pragmatics and Discourse Analysis at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
