Since 2015, I am Assistant Professor (with tenure) at the University of Sheffield. My research area is Macroeconomics with a focus on fiscal policy and migration topics. Here is a link to my CV.

My recent research has examined the effects of fiscal consolidations at the zero lower bound, the interaction of fiscal consolidation with tax evasion and corruption, and the interaction of fiscal consolidation with emigration, using Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium models with labor market frictions.

Currently, I am on research sabbatical as Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow at MOVE, working on Fiscal Consolidation, Unemployment and Labour Mobility in the Euro Area (H2020-MSCA-IF-2017 Grant 798015-EuroCrisisMove).

I have recently edited a volume on Understanding Migration with Macroeconomics (with J. Caballé and J. Llull), which will be published by Palgrave Macmillan in June 2020 and includes contributions from the Sheffield Workshop on the Macroeconomics of Migration I organized in 2018.

My academic formation has taken place in the following three institutions:

  • Athens University of Economics and Business (PhD degree in 2013)
  • Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (12 months as visiting PhD student, and also Juan de la Cierva and Marie Skłodowska-Curie postdoctoral fellowships)
  • European University Institute (Max Weber and Jean Monnet postdoctoral fellowships)
