I have studied international relations at the University of Macedonia (Thessaloniki, Greece) and intelligence and strategic studies at Aberystwyth University, and I have completed my PhD at the University of Nottingham (2015) on the relations between the European Union and the United States on internal security issues. From February 2015-August 2016 I worked as an Assistant Professor in Turkey.
My research focuses on European Union, transatlantic relations, and international security, and it is informed by theories of international regimes. In my doctoral research I have used regime theory to analyse the cooperation between the United States and European Union in the field of counter-terrorism and internal security. This project has been recently published as a research monograph in Routledge ("EU-US Cooperation on Internal Security: Building a Transatlantic Regime").
At Liverpool Hope University I teach international relations, international security, and European Union subjects.
