I am interested in prosody and its interaction with syntax and pragmatics as well as in the role of prosody in processing.
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the project SPRINT: Speech Prosody in Interaction (ERC ADG-835263). As a member of SPRINT I investigate the intonation of Greek spoken in Athens and on Corfu taking into account the phonetic and the pragmatic side of intonation.
Back in 2016, I participated in the project ‘Components of Intonation and the Structure of Intonational Meaning’ (British Academy/Leverhulme, P.P. Amalia Arvaniti) that investigated whether intonation contributes to utterance meaning holistically or whether it consists of primitives each contributing independently, using Greek as a case study.
Back in 2014, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the project Understanding questions (NWO). I investigated the prosody of non-fronted wh-questions and its role in the comprehension of these questions comparing Mandarin Chinese with French.
