A few words about myself
I am Professor of Linguistics (with specialisation in Phonology & Morphophonology) at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. I received my Ph.D. from Leiden University/HIL in 1999 (Ph.D. thesis: Headmost Accent Wins). Before my appointment at the AUTh, I was a Talent-Stipendium (NWO) postdoc researcher at UMass, Amherst (1998-1999) and a Faculty Member at the Dept. of Modern Foreign Languages at Boston University (2000-2001) and the Dept. of Mediterranean Studies, University of the Aegean (2001-2009).
As a graduate student and later on as a scholar, I had the chance to be part of the academic life of many great Departments in Europe (e.g., Leiden University/LUCL, University of Konstanz, Cambridge University, University of Oxford) and the USA (e.g., Stanford University, UCSC). I also visited the Dept. of Linguistics and Philosophy at MIT (2008) with the Fulbright Scholar Program in order to carry out research on the evolution of pitch accents in Ancient Greek.
