How to pronounce my name?

Hello!

My formal name is Ioannis and I am Postodoctoral Research Associate at the King’s College London in King’s Business School and the Department of Economics. I work on an ESRC-funded project, led by Rebecca Riley, in collaboration with The Productivity Institute and the Office for National Statistics (ONS). Also, I am a network research fellow of the GLO, where I participated in the VirtYS program of 2019/20.

Earlier, I obtained an undergraduate first class honours degree from the Athens University of Economics and Business (graduated on the top 4% of my class). My dissertation graded as Excellent (10/10) offering me a scholarship to pursue my postgraduate studies at the same institution. Later, I received the Vice Chancellor’s Research Scholarship Award to complete my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Kent (UK) under the supervision of Amanda Gosling and Olena Nizalova.
