Prior to appointment to her current post at Uppsala in January 2022, Anthoula worked at Lund, Princeton and the Hellenic Open University.

Her research focuses primarily on democratic theory, constitutional ideas and political ethics.

More specific topics include militant democracy and democratic self-defence, compulsory voting, sortition, ostracism, and lately democratic secessionism.

Anthoula is also broadly interested in political ideologies, the history of political thought (mainly 19th and 20th century), and ancient Greek democratic thinking.
