Research Interests

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

I specifically investigate how linear-ordering and discourse-related information are encoded in the faculty of language by pursuing of a biolinguistic approach within the minimalist program.

My PhD dissertation is the first one to examine Romeyka, the only Asia Minor Greek variety still spoken in the area historically known as Asia Minor (modern-day Anatolia, Turkey), which has remained largely undocumented up to this day. Crucially, Romeyka is an endangered language; hence, the urgency of the documentation effort led me to collect and study original data, which result from fieldwork I conducted in the area.
