Having joined the Edinburgh Law School in 2023 as a lecturer, I am contributing to the LLM in International Banking Law and Finance by teaching financial and banking law and regulation. My current research focuses specifically on shadow banking and broadly on the interrelation and interplay between law and the socio-economic context through the lens of banking and financial law and regulation and its historical evolution. Furthermore, my research interests include EU law, financial criminal law, comparative law and inter or multi-disciplinary research methods and methodology.

Before joining Edinburgh Law School, I worked as a lecturer at Coventry University, where I taught EU law, banking and financial law, foundations of the English Legal System and research skills. During my PhD studies under the supervision of Prof. Hans-Wolfgang Micklitz at the European University Institute in Florence (Italy), I was conducting research on shadow banking and the role of law and particularly EU banking and financial law in its creation and growth. My PhD research was funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the EUI. Moreover, I have been a part-time Teaching Associate at the Florence School of Banking and Finance (EUI) and a Visiting Researcher at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Beyond academia, I have worked as a Legal Trainee at the European Systemic Risk Board Secretariat and the Court of Justice of the European Union in the Chamber of the Judge Lars Bay Larsen and as a Qualified Lawyer in Greece. Currently, I am a member of Kavala Bar Association in Greece, the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE) and the Society of Legal Scholars (SLS) and a fellow of the European Law Institute (ELI).
