He has earned a degree in Modern Greek Literature at the University of Thessaloniki (2002), completed an M.A. in Historical Research at the University of Sheffield (2003) and a Ph.D. in History at the University of Crete (2010). His doctoral thesis entitled “Greek-American Workers, the Communist Movement and the Labor Unions (1900-1950): In Search of Labor Americanism in the Years of Great Depression” focused on Greek-American labor communities, social transformations in the Depression Decade and the New Deal dynamics, challenging thus the traditional viewpoint that presented the history of Greek immigration as a series of “ethnic successes” and “business accomplishments”.
