Akiva the Elder of Salonika #rabbinic #sephardic

I am in need of any information I can find regarding the Spanish part of the life of Akiva the Elder of Salonika, who according to GENI was born in Spain ca1360 and died in Salonika ca1400 (note: this is well before the Alhambra Decree), because I believe he is part of my own great-grandfather's yDNA ancestral lineage. If there are any Jewish History scholars who can recommend books or a person to consult with, or otherwise point me in a worthwhile direction, I would be most grateful.
