Biography

I hold an undergraduate degree (Ptychion) in Sociology from the University of Crete (2003). Soon after I  received a competitive scholarship from Hellenic State Foundation of Scholrships (IKY) to conduct my postgraduate research. In 2009, I received my PhD in Social and Policy Sciences from the University of Bath, titled 'From democratisation to marketisation: A comparative historicla study of Swedish, German and British pension systems and funds'. Before joining the University of York, I taught at the Department of Social and Policy Sciences (Bath) and I also spent a year as a post-doctoral researcher at the Nordic Centre of Excellence in Welfare Research (NORDwel) at the University of Helsinki.

My research and teaching interests are in the comparative political economy of the welfare state; comparative political economy of the Europe Union; familistic welfare capitalism; governance and power approaches to welfare; historical institutionalism; and comparative research methods. Recently, I published articles on family as a socio-economic actor and  the impact of austerity on South European middle class. My current research focuses on the political economy of 'familistic' welfare regimes, debt and welfare austerity.
