Dionysos Alexiou was born and raised in Cyprus. Following his BA in Classics from the University of Ioannina (2003-2007) he went on to complete an MA -also from the University of Ioannina- in Medieval Greek Literature (2007-2010) and a PhD from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2011-2015) where he focused his research on the reception of ancient Greek drama in newer dramaturgy. He received a scholarship from the A.G. Leventis Foundation throughout his master’s and doctoral research. He has also successfully completed a specialized course for accredited guides-docents at the A.G. Leventis Gallery in Cyprus, and recently completed a course in ‘Copy Editing and Proofreading’ at the National and Kapodistrian University in Athens. Throughout his studies, he has been involved as a volunteer at Walk of Truth, a Dutch NGO, which aims at the protection and return of looted artefacts in war-torn countries, as well as combating illicit art traffic. He is currently working as an Associate to the Office of the President of the House of Representatives of the Republic of Cyprus, and as an adjunct professor at the University of Cyprus (Department of Classics) and University of Nicosia (Department of Languages and Literature).
