Biography

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Information Systems in the School of Business, Management and Economics at the University of Sussex, UK; a Visiting Professor at the University of Valencia, Spain (2016 - present); the Secretary of the IFIP Working Group 9.5 on Virtuality and Society; and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).

I earned my PhD from the University of Bath, with the support of an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) scholarship. I also hold an MSc in Management and Strategic Information Systems (Bath), a BSc (hons) in Economics (Piraeus), and a PGCert in Higher Education (Sussex). I recently conducted a research visit at The Pennsylvania State University, USA (summer 2016), and have formerly held positions at Birkbeck, University of London (spring/summer 2015), and Royal Holloway, University of London (2013-2015). Prior to becoming an academic, I worked in junior management positions in Madrid, Spain. I speak English, Greek and Spanish fluently, and German and Portuguese at intermediate level.

To date, I have presented my research at management and Information Systems conferences in Germany, Spain, Greece, Croatia, India, the USA, the UK, Cyprus, Israel, the Netherlands, Canada, Finland, and Ireland. My research has been published as chapters in volumes (books, handbooks and encyclopedias), and as articles in the following journals: New Technology, Work & Employment (ABS 3*); Orgnizational Research Methods (ABS 4*), Creativity & Innovation Management (ABS 2*) and Information Technology & People (ABS 3*; see here my extant publications).

Visual & Online Dissemination Outputs

My research has begun to be disseminated to non-academic communities through innovative ways.
