I am a Research Economist at the Economic Analysis and Research Department of Bank Greece.

I work broadly in the areas of econometric theory, financial econometrics, applied financial econometrics, and empirical finance. I am actively involved in a number of working groups and research projects shaping academic discourse and policy discussions related to climate change, productivity, digitalisation and financial literacy.

Previously, I worked as an Economist at the Hellenic Competition Commission. For the period 2016 – 2019, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Athens University of Economics and Business. I have been a visiting scholar at Athens University of Economics and Business, University of Piraeus and Cyprus University of Technology. I received a PhD in Econometrics from Athens University of Economics and Business.
