He has published a large number of articles and special studies in international journals and scientific collective volumes on the topography of the Classical, Hellenistic and Roman cities of the Greek peninsula. He has participated in many international research programs at IMS / FORTH and other institutes; since August 2021, he is a member of the research project Byzantine Agricultural Landscape Across the Aegean, directed at IMS/FORTH by Dr Nikos Tsivikis. He studies the formation of the rural landscape and the farms in the region of Amorion and Messini through satellite imagery.
