Research Summary
Since 2015 I have been interested in the political economy of neoliberalism. During the last years, I have been working on higher education, exploring how neoliberal policies affect the social cohesion of the higher education systems. Also, I am interested in the process of social transformation and the development of alternatives to neoliberalism, from the perspective of policy and politics. I specialised in qualitative inquiries, policy critical analysis and comparative methods. 
Teaching Summary
I teach as PGTA in the module Power, Conflict and Collective Action: The Sociology of Social Movements 2021/22. The course is led by Dr Aris Komporozos-Athanasiou.
