He teaches courses (B.A. and M.A.) on modern Greek literature and is responsible for the planning and realisation of the e-Learning projects for Modern Greek Language Acquisition and the History of Modern Greek Literature at the Chair for Modern Greek Studies (Prof. Dr. Miltos Pechlivanos). From 2014 to 2018 he was tasked with the conception and design of the IT infrastructure of the Center for Modern Greece/CeMoG (Webportal and Media Library, Edition Romiosini Online Library, Knowledge Base of the German-Greek cultural and scientific transfer) and was the project manager of "CeMoG Digital" at the Center for Digital Systems (CeDiS). At CeMoG he designed the digital platform for the Online Compendium on German-Greek Entanglements and coordinated the application development with the Open Encyclopedia System (2018-2020).

His research encompasses modern Greek Literature, aesthetics of production and reception, literary network analysis and digital scholarship in the Humanities. Among his fields of special interest are the modern historical novel in Greece, transnational literary communication in the interwar period, the international reception of Nikos Kazantzakis and digital scholarship.
