After obtaining my Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics (with honors) at the University of Ioannina I was really excited to continue my further education on new fields of science like economics. In 2002 I was accepted (with full scholarship) at the MSc Program in Economics, at Athens University of Economics and Business from which I graduated in 2004 with honors. In 2004 I was accepted in the PhD Program of the Department (with scholarship) where I was undertaking theoretical and empirical research as part of my PhD which I got it on April 2008.
In parallel with the writing of my PhD Thesis and for the period 2006-2008 I was working at the FEIR/IOBE as the head researcher of the Hellenic Food and Beverages Industry research department and as a research associate of the Department of Macroeconomic Analysis and Policy. In FEIR/IOBE I have leaded several research projects, I have published several working papers on policy and economic issues and I have initiated some of the FEIR/IOBE's ongoing collaborations.
In 2009 I joined the faculty of the Department of Economics at the University of Ioannina where I teach microeconomics and statistics at the under- (and post-) graduate level.
