My undergraduate studies majored in International Economics and Business Relations in the Democritus University of Thrace, Greece. Afterwards, I attended the Master's program of Economics in Umeå University, Sweden and concluded it with a thesis entitled ″The impacts of economic crisis on human behavior and labor market-a minor field study″ which was awarded a pass-with-distinction grade. As a PhD student in Lund University, my research focuses on city logistics. I was a member of the research team of the city logistics project SamCity, in the city of Malmö.
On my research I investigate the problems, obstacles and success factors for implementing coordinated goods distribution in the cities and the diversity of motives and goals of stakeholders involved in city logistics. There is a big challenge for cities of the future to achieve a cost-effective distribution of goods and good coordination and collaboration between the stakeholders, since are necessary in order to obtain more sustainable and liveable cities. Hence, my research will contribute to the field of economic efficiency in city logistics and the value concerns of the stakeholders leading to a sustainable development.
