Currently he is doing his PhD research on the way museum exhibitions influence the production of tourist souvenirs, and the role that this material culture has on shaping our collective and personal identities. Furthermore, being an Athenian, he always tries to find ways of presenting his hometown in a way that connects its rich heritage with its buzzing present.

Dionysios’s goal is to be able to introduce visitors to this lively and exciting city and to demonstrate to them that apart from its vivid past there is also a rather interesting present and a promising future.
