Academic interests

My research focuses on the investigation of (morpho)syntactic and cognitive abilities of monolingual and bi-/multilingual healthy and neurologically impaired individuals (in particular, persons with aphasia, Alzheimer’s disease, and Multiple Sclerosis). 

Courses taught

  • Aphasia and Adult Neurogenic Disorders (Master's course – Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Long Island University, Brooklyn Campus,  New York, USA)
  • Advanced Neuroanatomy (Master's course – Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Long Island University, Brooklyn Campus,  New York, USA)
  • The Impact of Bilingualism/Multilingualism on Cognitive and Language Abilities (Master’s course – Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway)
  • Psycholinguistics (undergraduate course – Department of Speech and Language Therapy, Technological Educational Institute of Epirus, Ioannina, Greece)
  • Neurolinguistics (undergraduate course – Department of Speech and Language Therapy, Technological Educational Institute of Epirus, Ioannina, Greece)
  • General Linguistics (undergraduate course – Department of Speech and Language Therapy, Technological Educational Institute of Epirus, Ioannina, Greece)
  • Phonological development and disorders (undergraduate course – Department of Speech and Language Therapy, Technological Educational Institute of Epirus, Ioannina, Greece)
  • Modern Greek (Department of foreign literatures, comparative literature and cultural studies, University of Trieste, Trieste, Italy)

Background

I hold a PhD in Neuro-/Psycholinguistics (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece). I am currently a Researcher at MultiLing/Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies at the University of Oslo, Norway, as well as a tenure-track Associate Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Long Island University, Brooklyn Campus, New York. Prior to my current appointments, I held a postdoctoral research fellow position at MultiLing (University of Oslo), a Marie Curie (postdoctoral) fellow position in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Potsdam, Germany, as well as research and teaching positions in Greece and in Italy.
