I am a researcher at Erasmus Happiness Economics Research Organization (EHERO), Erasmus University Rotterdam and a candidate fellow at Tinbergen institute of the behavioral and experimental economics group.

I previously held as an assistant professor of Urban & Regional Economics in the Department of Applied Economics at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, and as a lecturer at the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) at the Erasmus University Rotterdam.

My research interests include happiness economics, regional economic transformation and evolution, agglomeration economies and the locational behavior of firms.

I obtained my PhD with distinction from the University of Patras (Greece) in 2014. Prior to my PhD I completed an MSc in Health Economics at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, a Research MSc in Methods and Statistics at Leiden University, the Netherlands, and a BA (Hons) in Economics at the University of Patras.
