I am a Max Weber Fellow (2015-2017) at the Department of Political and Social Sciences, European University Institute. I am affiliated at the thematic research group "Europe in the World: Foreign Relations, International Security, World Politics". 

Prior to joining the EUI, I was a post-doctoral research fellow at the Athens University of Economics and Business (2013-2015) in the research project "The EU Performance at the United Nations General Assembly".

I received my Ph.D. in International Relations from Athens University, Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2011). I hold an M.Sc. in Economics from Tilburg University (2010), an M.A. in European Integration from Essex University (2005), an M.A. in International Political Economy from Newcastle University (2004) and a B.Sc. in Economics from Athens University (2003).

As a Max Weber Fellow at the EUI, I employ diverse computational social science approaches (automated content analysis techniques and sentiment analysis) to examine the role of the EU as a global and regional security actor.

My broader research agenda focuses on European integration, international relations, foreign policy analysis and political methodology.
