Dr. Katerina Marazi holds a BA in English Language and Literature, an MA in American Literature and Culture, a PhD in Intercultural Studies and American Pop Culture and a Post-graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching (CiLT) in Higher Education from the University of Sheffield.

In addition to the textual comparison of adaptations employed mainly in Literary Studies, she argues for the contextual comparison of intellectual property adaptations in franchise culture through the implementation of brand identity.
