I am a third year PhD student. I am mainly interested in environmental politics, environmental attitudes and corporate green commitments. In my dissertation, I study the diffusion of environmental attitudes among different political actors. I focus on individual participation in environmental organizations, parties environmental platforms, and government policies. In related projects, I focus on natural disasters, green commitments by multinational corporations, and environmental protests. Before joining the Department of Government at Essex, I received a Masters degree in International Management at the Essex Business School and a Bachelors degree in Political Science and History at the Panteion University in Athens, Greece.
