I joined the University of Sussex in September 2011 as a Lecturer in Business and Innovation. I hold a Bachelor in Economics (University of Aristotle, Greece), a Master in Information Technology, Management and Organisational Change (University of Lancaster), a Master in Philosophy (University of Sussex) and a PhD in Organisation, Work and Technology (University of Lancaster). I have completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning (University of Sussex) and I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Before joining Sussex I worked as a post-doctoral researcher in the London School of Economics and Political Science.

I serve as an Associate Editor of the Information Systems Journal and I am a member of the editorial board of the New Technology, Work and Employment journal. 

I'm a member of the British Sociological Association and the Society for Social Studies of Science.
