I am an Associate Professor in Accounting and Finance in Kingston Business School. I am in the Department of Accounting, Finance and Informatics, and I am teaching in the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes of the school. My principal research interests are in the areas of empirical asset pricing, monetary policy, accounting and economics, and international finance. I am always willing to consider the supervision of doctoral students with keen interests in such research areas.
I received my PhD in Finance from the University of Essex. I also hold an MSc in Accounting and Finance from the University of Essex and a BA in Accounting and Finance from the University of Macedonia. Before joining Kingston University, I was a lecturer in Accounting and Finance at Essex Business School, and an intern in the banking and business consulting sectors.
In my research I explore the linkages between finance and the macroeconomy. My current research examines the nature of the relationship between monetary policy and asset prices and the determinants of this relationship. In doing so, emphasis is drawn on the implications of the central bank communication for the transmission mechanism, on the identification of the monetary policy propagation mechanism, and on the international dimensions of the monetary policy effects. My research also attempts to explain the link between energy prices and asset price fluctuations.
