She is Professor of Linguistics at the School of English, Aristotle University, Thessaloniki, Greece, where she introduced and has been teaching core courses in linguistics, such as Linguistics I, II, Semantics, Pragmatics, Discourse Analysis, Subordinate Clauses in Modern Greek, Discourse Markers of Modern Greek, etc. Her 1982 University of Warwick Ph.D. thesis Problems connected with the notion of Implicature (accessible in pdf in homepage) was one of the first major critiques of Grice's Program of Logic and Conversation, proposing the maxim of Relevance as the dominant one, while relegating many instances of purportedly conversational implicature to a frame structure and contextual assumptions. The thesis draws on ethnomethodology (CA) and cognitive science in redefining Relevance and Implicature. Conventional implicature (mainly 'but' and 'therefore') was also discussed and criticized.

Her research has been published in various journals (Journal of Pragmatics, Pragmatics & Cognition, Word & Image, Sociolinguistica, Journal of Applied Linguistics, etc.) and as book chapters.
