Olga Demetriou completed a Ph.D. (LSE) thesis on the politicisation of Turkish minority identities in Greece in 2002. She carried out research at Wolfson College, Cambridge between 2001 and 2003 and at St Peter's and St. Antony's Colleges, Oxford, between 2003 and 2006. She has written on nationalism in relation to political humour, space, historiography, and minority policies in Greece and on processes of reunification and the dynamics of EU accession on Cyprus.
Her current research focuses on the process of political subjectivisation in Cyprus, and focuses on the shaping of subjectivity through concepts of 'loss' and 'abandonment'."
