Research Interests

I am a linguist, associated with the research project “Description and Documentation of the Romeyka varieties in Pontus; Continuity, Contact and Change” (Principle investigator: Dr Ioanna Sitaridou) at the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom.

I read Classics, History, and Linguistics in Greece and the United Kingdom.

My research interests lie in the field of the theory of language within the generative framework.
