I am Associate Professor at the Department of Sociology, having joined Warwick in 2014. Previously, I was John Adams Career Development Fellow at the Centre for Longitudinal Studies of UCL Institute of Education, and pre-doctoral Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Surrey, where I also obtained my doctorate. I was first introduced to Sociology at the University of Cambridge (M.Phil). Prior to this, I studied Politics and Economics in Greece, where I am originally from.

I am interested in various topics in social stratification and life-course research, which I usually explore by conducting secondary analyses of existing large-scale data. I have been working with time-use data since my PhD, which focused on new dimensions of temporal inequality. My current work focuses on 1) consequences of free time inequalities, 2) couple time in the UK, and 3) influence of diary mode on time-use data quality.

Another strand of my research focuses on life trajectories of disabled young people. I will be Principal Investigator of a 3-year Leverhulme Research Project Grant on "Educational Pathways and Work Outcomes of Disabled Young People in England", starting in October 2020.
