I am a Senior Research Associate on the TILOS Project at Norwich Business School (NBS) under the supervision or Prof Konstantinos Chalvatzis. I am also an Associate Tutor in the School of Computing Sciences.  I joined NBS in October 2013 and I have recently completed my PhD in Finance (Oct 2017) under a faculty scholarship and the supervision of Prof Raphael Markellos, Dr Apostolos Kourtis and Dr Xiaojing Song. I hold an MSc (Distinction) in Accounting and Finance and a BSc (Distinction) in Management Science and Technology with specialisation in Quantitative Methods from Athens University of Economics and Business.  Prior to returning to academia, I gained valuable experience working in the banking sector at Agricultural Bank of Greece and Piraeus Bank in Athens, Greece. I have also experience as a Research Assistant at Athens University of Economics and Business, and as an Intern at the Treasury Department of Titan S.A. in Athens, Greece. My research interests lie in the field of Asset Pricing, Portfolio Theory, Risk Management, Online Information and Information Disclosure.
