I was born and raised in Greece, where I studied English and American Literature at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. I then completed my MA and PhD at the University of East Anglia, and I have been at Dundee since 2001.
I work in the area of contemporary American fiction, and my current projects include studies of ‘credit crunch fiction’ and of the police procedural.
I have published books, articles and book chapters on various American authors, including Paul Auster, Philip Roth, Annie Proulx, Jonathan Safran Foer and many others.
I currently teach courses on Multi-Ethnic American Fiction and American Crime Fiction and I contribute to the Creative Writing Master’s Programme. I am also the Learning & Teaching Co-ordinator for English.
