I am a social scientist interested in political economy, international affairs, and global health and development.
Currently, I am assistant professor of sociology and political economy at Bocconi University. Before moving to Milan, I held research posts at Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard.
My research focuses on the links between global processes, national responses, and local- or individual-level outcomes. I have published extensively on three research areas: decision-making in global governance, the development and evolution of global norms, and the social consequences of market liberalization.
My work has appeared in leading journals, including the American Sociological Review, the American Journal of Sociology, The Lancet, and World Development. This research has received attention by many media outlets, including the New York Times, Le Monde, El País, Reuters, and the BBC. In addition, it formed the basis of parliamentary questions in the UK and in the European Parliament. I have also worked as a consultant to the World Health Organization and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.
I read sociology and politics at Cambridge and Athens. My research has received financial support by the Institute for New Economic Thinking, the Cambridge Political Economy Society, the Onassis Foundation, and the Greek Ministry of Education.
