I hold a BSc in Marketing and Communication from Athens University of Economics and Business (Greece), an MBA from Agricultural University of Athens (Greece) and a PhD in Marketing from University of Patras (Greece) where I worked as a Research Assistant in various E.U. funded projects and as a Teaching Assistant as well.
My research interests focus on the areas of Retailer-Supplier relationships; Supply Chains; Retail Supply Chains; Food Supply Chains and Consumer Behavior. Currently, I am examining the concept of power in Retailer-Supplier relationships. I also examined food supply chain performance, sustainability in food supply chains and SMEs and consumer behavior concerning food products.
