Currently, I hold the position of Lecturer in Finance at the University of Southampton and I hold a PhD in Finance from the University of Cyprus.


My general research interests span the areas of machine learning, bankruptcy prediction, systemic risk, and sentiment in financial markets.

My research results have real life impact and can be applied on any of the following topics (among others):

  • Probability of default estimation – credit scoring

  • Model building strategies for bankruptcy prediction (based on machine learning, structural and statistical models)

  • Model validation and model selection

  • Variable selection methods

  • Measuring systemic risk

Over the course of my academic career, I have published scientific articles in leading journals (according to the ABS list widely used by UK Business Schools) such as, the Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions & Money, Quantitative Finance, Review of Quantitative Finance and Accounting, International Journal of Finance and Economics etc, on various topics pertaining to machine learning, bankruptcy prediction, financial markets under stress, and investor sentiment. In addition, I have presented my research in various leading academic conferences around the globe such as, the European Financial Management Association (EFMA), the conference of the International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS), the Financial Management Association conference (FMA) and others.


I welcome enquires pertaining to potential research collaboration, PhD supervision or consulting services.
