BiographyI completed my BA in English Language and Literature at the University of Athens, Greece and continued with my graduate studies first at Georgetown University, Washington DC (MSc Applied Linguistics, 1996) and then at King's College London (PhD Sociolinguistics, 2003). Before joining Goldsmiths, I lectured at other London Universities and at the English Department, University of Bern, in Switzerland.
