His primary research interests are anchored in the areas of constitutional law, comparative politics, international law & international relations. Particularly he explores the fields of institutional arrangements and constitutional designs in ethnically divided societies, ethnofederalism, consociationalism and political autonomy. His doctoral thesis investigates the changing legal boundaries of bi-communal constitutionalism in Cyprus resulting from the shift of non-territorial autonomy to territorial one. His interests are further expanded in questions of international relations, geopolitics, and political economy as reflected in the regions of Eastern Mediterranean and Middle-East.
