Georgios is Professor in Economics and a member of the School's Microeconomics cluster. He is interested in economic theory, and particularly in decision theory and experiments.
His research in behavioural decision theory has focused on theoretical modelling, experimental testing and the development of appropriate computational tools to better understand the causes and economic implications of “hard” decisions. He has contributed to the theoretical and experimental economics literature on decision making under limited comparability, status quo bias, context-dependence and choice-overload constraints. Additionally, his current interests and contributions include the modelling and measurement of preference intensities and their implications for optimal economic allocations. His research has been published in, among others, the Economic Journal, Quantitative Economics, American Economic Journal: Microeconomics, Journal of Economic Theory and the European Economic Review.
Before joining the Adam Smith Business School in April 2023, Georgios was Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and Reader in Economics at the University of St Andrews (2011-2023). He received his PhD in Economics from the University of Cambridge in 2011.
