After completing my BA in Politics from the University of Athens (2013) and an MSc in Social Research from Birkbeck College, University of London (2014), I graduated from LSE with an MSc in Sociology (2015). In December 2020, I submitted my PhD Thesis in Sociology at LSE.
Funded by ESRC, my thesis is an urban ethnography investigating the intersection of care, homelessness and urban space in Athens in a context of austerity and profound lack of resources. Considering both macro-level and micro-level factors shaping care, I explore an array of spaces where care is provided to homeless people and the relationships between the latter and frontline care workers. My broader research interests include urban sociology, socio-spatial inequalities, theories of care and care ethics, homelessness and qualitative research.
From 2015 until now, I have taken up several roles in the School. I have organised and managed a Research Festival for the Sociology Department which brought together academics, activists and artists and I have served as an Editor of the LSE Sociology Blog. Most recently, I have been a Graduate Teaching Assistant in Criminology at the LSE Sociology Department and at the LSE Executive Summer School. Currently, I am teaching Advanced Research Methods to second year undergraduate students. In addition, I am a Research Supervisor at LSE Changemakers and a Research Assistant in two projects on financial inclusion and equity crowdfunding.
Outside my academic life, my personal interests include art and politics and I always enjoy a good conversation with friends, cooking and long walks irrespective of the weather!
