Can you tell us who you are?
I was born and raised in Athens, where I also had my undergraduate studies and MSc in Economics (both at Athens University of Economics and Business). I completed my PhD from the University of Glasgow in 2020. Between my undergraduate and postgraduate studies I worked in the private sector in Marketing Services companies gaining valuable experience and money to fund my postgraduate studies! Currently working as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Macroeconomics (Aug 2020-present) at Lancaster University (Management School, Department of Economics) (link)
In my free time I enjoy watching football, travelling, hiking and eating good food! I also enjoy reading history and popular science!
Can you explain us what you are working on or would like to work on in your future research projects?
I work mainly in the field of macroeconomics of inequality and income risk with an emphasis on wealth inequality. I have studied inequality in several dimensions, with an emphasis on analysis within and between (social) groups (including by social class, education, gender, region, occupation). My research aims to identify factors that affect inequality and how income and wealth are distributed within society. Currently I am participating in a project examining the medium run effects of pandemics on inequality.
Who is your favourite economist? Why?
I am a big fan of Branko Milanovic for his work on inequality.
