Assistant Professor in Political Analysis

I received a BA in International and European Politics from the University of Macedonia (Greece), a MA in Political Sociology and Public Policy from Sciences Po Paris (IEP) and a MA in Political and Social Communication from Paris 1, Panthéon-Sorbonne University (France), where I also defended my PhD. My doctoral dissertation examined how the professionalization of political communication affected the organizational change of socialist parties in Europe.

Before joining the University of Athens as Assistant Professor in Political Analysis, I was a Lecturer in Politics at Exeter University in the UK (2018-2021),  a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Oxford (2016-2017) and a a two-year EU Marie Curie Intra-European fellow (IEF), on the project “Social media and resurgent ethno-nationalism in Greece”, affiliated at Bournemouth University (UK).

I have worked in research projects on political behaviour in crisis-ridden Greece (radicalism, indignants' movements) and the Greek diaspora. I have published on party change, elections, campaigns, the far right in Europe, political violence and the rise of right-wing extremism. 

Before academia, I have worked as a political communications expert, drawing my experience form the French private sector (Agence Verte, Paris) and the Greek government.
