I am a Research Fellow (Personal Investigator) of the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation at the Athens University of Economics and Business, which I will be joining shortly as Assistant Professor. I am also a Research Fellow of the Greek & European Economy Observatory at ELIAMEP and MOVE at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
Formerly, I was a Lecturer (with tenure) at the University of Sheffield (2015-2020). Past fellowships include Marie Skłodowska-Curie at MOVE (2018-2020) and Max Weber (2013-2014) & Jean Monnet (2014-2015) at the European University Institute.
My primary field is International Macroeconomics.
A line of published work examines fiscal policy related issues: the interaction of fiscal consolidation with tax evasion and corruption, fiscal austerity at the ZLB in a currency union, the impact of the public wage bill on private productivity, and the spillover effects of public infrastructure spending.
My latest research focuses on the macroeconomics of migration. New working papers investigate the interaction of fiscal austerity with emigration in the Greek Depression and the macro effects of migration shocks in Germany. I have also co-edited a volume on Understanding Migration with Macroeconomics.
My ongoing research is on the macroeconomics of automation with two projects in progress.
