Welcome to my website. I am a tenured Lecturer (equivalent to Assistant Professor) at the University of Sheffield. My research area is International Macroeconomics with a focus on fiscal policy, labor market, and migration topics.
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).
My published work has examined recently the effects of fiscal consolidations at the zero lower bound, the interaction of fiscal consolidation with tax evasion and corruption, and the effects of the government wage bill on private productivity. My latest research studies the interaction of fiscal austerity with emigration in the Greek Depression and the macroeconomic effects of migration shocks in Germany.
My academic formation has taken place in three institutions:
- Athens University of Economics and Business (PhD, 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)
