Short CV:

A spatial planner and regional development professional by training, my experience in and exposure to territorial development, urban and regional planning and urban regeneration spans a variety of capacities and degrees of responsibility. I started off my career in 1998 as a planning practitioner, working on projects like the formulation of quality of life indicators for the Urban Audit Pilot Project of DG Regio and the Unification of the Archaeological Sites of Athens. I then worked as a planner in the Organising Committee for the Olympic Games- 'Athens 2004'. I moved to academia in 2003 (University of Reading) and to UCL in 2006.

Since then, I have acted as an expert and advisor to a range of public and private sector as well as civic society organisations (international organisations, national, regional and local government bodies, investment funds, NGOs) mainly in EU but also in non-EU countries. Indicatively, I have acted as an advisor to the European Commission (DG Regio, JRC, SRSS), the Office of the Greek Prime Minister and the Greek Ministry of the Environment. I have also been a consultant for the European Investment Bank, the IGLOO Regeneration Fund and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

My current research looks into land value capture for the provision of public goods, the governance of development rights allocation and the relations between urban development and multiple deprivation. My most recent publications cover the relation between planning and public land availability for large scale urban development in the UK, an analysis of planning reform efforts in Greece during the crisis and a mapping of multiple deprivation in Athens.
