Welcome to my personal web page
I am a research economist at the Bank of Greece. 
My research interests are in the areas of Macroeconomics, Public Finance, Business Cycles and Economic Growth. My current research focuses on the analysis of issues related to fiscal policy, financial intermediation, structural reforms and tax evasion in Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models.
