Welcome to my personal web page!

I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics at  University of Cyprus and a founding member of UCY LExEcon, the Laboratory for Experimental Economics at the University of Cyprus.

I received my Ph.D. in Economics from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain, under the supervision of Antonio Cabrales.

My research spans across microeconomic theory, game theory and a broad range of their applications, with a special focus on the study of social and economic networks.

Currently, I am particularly interested in problems related to strategic communication and to processes of opinion formation under social interactions.
