Profile

The recent economic and political crisis has brought with it challenges which require an increased understanding of the changing dynamics of markets, economies, politics as well as their effect on global and local societies and their underlying culture/structure. I started seriously engaging in socio-political discussions through an MA in Global Criminology where I examined crime as a social phenomenon highly influenced by social, political and economic factors.

The recent economic and political crisis has brought with it challenges which require an increased understanding of the changing dynamics of markets, economies, politics as well as their effect on global and local societies and their underlying culture/structure. I started seriously engaging in socio-political discussions through an MA in Global Criminology where I examined crime as a social phenomenon highly influenced by social, political and economic factors. A pivotal moment was my MA thesis in which I researched the financial crisis in Cyprus focusing on the way national agencies and the Troika handled the situation as well as the effects of certain decisions on the populace. To holistically understand and validly theorise the findings, I had to delve deep into the main concepts of political science, political economy, sociology and critical criminology. Through this process, my eagerness to develop a knowledge on political and social sciences and combine them with criminological theories became stronger. 

I am currently working on my Doctorate thesis which in short, is a multisided and cross-disciplinary qualitative research exploring different forms of violence that emerged in the period of acute economic recession and political upheaval in Greece.
