I am a lecturer in finance at Keele Business School since 2022. Before joining Keele, I was a credit risk data analyst in fintech company focusing on micro-lending and airtime credit services. In terms of my education background, I hold a PhD in Finance from Essex Business School, a MSc in Mathematical Modelling and Financial Engineering from the Department of Applied Mathematical and Physical sciences of National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and a BSc in Economics from University of Athens.
