His doctoral project involves a comprehensive examination of scholastic education centers on the Roman-Sasanian frontier during the 4th to 6th centuries. The primary focus is on the Syro-Mesopotamian area, with an emphasis on political-social aspects. This includes an in-depth exploration of the development and organization of theological-exegetical schools along the border, the characteristics of education in monastic environments, state interventions in education, mobility and control over the mobility of students and teachers and also it delves into the employment of intellectuals within the context of Roman-Sasanian empire relations.

Reano's research interests span various facets of late antique Roman history, encompassing socio-cultural interactions between ecclesiastical and scholastic circles, as well as relations between barbarians and roman aristocracies during the 4th and 5th centuries. Special attention is given to events related to the Alaric parable (394-410).
