She has been supervising and working closely with instructors of the Less Commonly Taught Languages (LCTLs), designing curriculum, leading colloquia, workshops and seminars on the teaching and learning of the LCTLs at the local and national levels. Her work focuses on promoting best practices and novel methods of instruction that take advantage of technologies and digitally-based innovations to create interactive, state of the art language learning environments. She has designed digitally-mediated courses for LCTLs in collaboration with programs at a number of universities.

Eva has been working with community-based schools of the Greek diaspora and she has been a mentor to Modern Greek language educators and schools of the Greek diaspora across the country. These efforts have increased language capacity through community-based language education and have resulted in programs of professional development and mentorship in the field. A native of Athens, Greece, Eva received her B.A. degree in Literature and Classics from the National Kapodistrian University of Greece and her Ph.D. in the field of Education from Stanford University.
