BSc (Athens University of Economics and Business), MSc (Aston Business School), PhD (Liverpool)
I joined the Warwick Business School research centre for the study of Innovation, Knowledge and Organisational Networks (IKON) as Research Fellow in June 2009. I am currently working on a research project entitled ‘Evidence in Management Decisions: Advancing Knowledge Utilisation in Healthcare Management’. The project investigates commissioning decision making in the English NHS, and, more specifically, the role evidence plays in relevant decision making processes.
My general research interests lie in the areas of social coordination, collaboration and cross-boundary learning in complex organisational settings. I have recently developed great interest in 'evidence-based' decision making in the context of healthcare management.
Before I joined IKON, I completed my PhD studies in the field of organisation studies at the University of Liverpool, Management School. My PhD project, which was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the University of Liverpool, focused on the notion of coordination in organisation theory through an in-depth qualitative study of a major construction project. As a part of my empirical research, I examined modern methods of procurement in construction and, more specifically, procurement processes of strategic partnering contracts. I also hold an MSc in Operational Research (distinction) from Aston Business School and a BSc in Business Administration from the Athens University of Economics and Business.
