Welcome to my homepage. I was born in Athens, and grew up in Patras, which is located on the west coast of Greece.

I am an Associate Professor and Vice Head in the Department of Microeconomics and Public Economics (MPE), and PhD Director within the Graduate School of Business and Economics (GSBE) at Maastricht University. I also serve as an Associate Editor in the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, and Coordinating Editor in Theory and Decision.

My research focuses primarily on Behavioral Economics, Game Theory and Decision Theory. I am also a member of the UM Behavioural Insights Centre

Most of my research deals with the relationship among beliefs, information and behavior (e.g., how to measure beliefs, how beliefs are affected by information, how beliefs affect behavior, etc). I have also worked on cooperation, risk preferences and evolutionary game theory, and occasionally on interesting mathematical problems within other fields. Currently, I am also working on interesting applications within political science and sports.

My Erdös Number is (at most) 3. I do not have an Erdös-Bacon Number, yet.
