I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics (environmental economics group), at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU). My research focuses on environmental policy, sustainable development, urban economics, social interactions, network theory and transportation economics. Before joining SLU, I was a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at the University of Luxembourg, a research fellow and lecturer at the University of Gothenburg and a visiting researcher at the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics, at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, in Stockholm. I studied economics at the Athens University of Economics and Business and I received my PhD in 2011.
