I joined Aston University in August 2011, as a Lecturer in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. Prior to that, I was an Adjunct Lecturer for 4 years in the University of Macedonia, in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and also in City College, the International Faculty of the University of Sheffield teaching Logistics and Supply Chain related modules to BSc, MSc and ExMBA students. 

In 2010, I was awarded a one year post-doc grant on “Innovation in the Food Chain” from the Greek State Scholarships Foundation. Also, for 3 years (2006-2009) I worked as a researcher in the FP6 European Project “e-Trust”, which dealt with the exploration and analysis of the trust factors affecting companies in the food chain in their transition from traditional to electronic B2B relationships. I have also been involved in several consulting projects as a freelance consultant.

I am currently the Research Convenor of the Project and Supply Chain Management Group.
