Personal profile

Research interests

My research is focused on two different areas. On the one hand it involves financial economics (corporate finance, payout policy, trade credit) and applied macro-finance topics utilizing mixed frequency data models, threshold analysis in panel data models, forecasting and now-casting. On the other hand it is based on dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models, heterogeneous agents, financial intermediation, financial institutions, optimal fiscal policy and debt management. Outputs have been published in highly ranked academic journals such as: Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, Journal of Financial Stability, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, Scandinavian Journal of Economics and Economics Letters.

I am also a Fellow with the Higher Education Academy (HEA). Before joining the Department of Economics at Bath, I was employed at the University of Stirling, Economics Division; and at the University of Nottingham, School of Economics. I have also acted as an external consultant and researcher at the European Central Bank.

I obtained a PhD in Economics from the University of Glasgow, Adam Smith Business School, where I have been awarded the Adam Smith Business School Prize for PhD excellence in 2015. I also hold an MSc in Economics from the University of Edinburgh, School of Economics and an MSc in Mathematics for Finance and Quantitative Methods from the Athens University of Economics and Business, Department of Informatics, and the University of Athens, Departments of Economics and Mathematics.

Willing to supervise PhD

I am willing to supervise PhD students in the areas of Financial Economics such as: Corporate Finance, Payout Policy and Trade Credit. I am also willing to supervise PhD students in the areas of applied Macro-Finance using Dynamic Stochastic General Equilirbium models.
