Moreover, the performance techniques and the pedagogical and musicological approach of the popular piano in eastern musical styles constitute his latest research activity. He is an active composer (five discographical works), a member of Modern Greek Studies Association, of the Greek branch of The International Association of Music Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centres, and of the Hellenic Musicological Society. He teaches as an Academic Scholar at the School of Popular and Traditional Music of the Technological Educational Institute of Epirus since 2015 and he has published two musicological books: The recording career of Vasílis Tsitsánis (1936-1983). An analysis of his music and the problems of research into Greek popular music (Ianos, 2014); Cloudy Sunday and the Akathist Hymn - A mirroring or a reflection? (Fagotto, 2017).
