During the period 1995-2002 she has been teaching as a lecturer in Music Acoustics and Μusic Τechnology at the Music Department of the Ionian University at Corfu.
Since 2002, she is teaching matters in Music Technology at the Music Department of the University of Athens. Since 2008 she is teaching in three different Master programs at the University of Athens and the School of Fine Arts (music and new media, sound ways of knowledge, digital visual music).
She is also supervisor of PhD candidates on the area of singing voice analysis and interactive systems.
She has participated in many international computer music and musicological conferences in Europe, Canada, Latin America and has published around 65 articles concerning the synthesis of the singing voice, the interactive music systems, Greek electroacoustic music composers (Xenakis, Adamis, Logothetis), physical modelling of instruments, music technology in education and acoustic ecology matters.
She has chaired and co-chaired seven symposia and conferences as: Music and Computers (Ionian University, 1998), First Greek Symposium on Music Informatics (Ionian University, 2000), International Symposium Iannis Xenakis (University of Athens, 2005), 4th Sound and Music Computing Conference 2007 (Lefkada, 2007), Pythagorean views on music and mathematics (Pythagorion, 2009), Anestis Logothetis Tribute (Athens 2012) and the Joint conference ICMC/SMC2014 in Athens (14-20 September 2014: www.icmc14-smc14.net) under the special theme: Music technology meets philosophy (from digital Echos to virtual ethos).
