I am Professor of Strategic Management at the Athens University of Economics and Business, Department of Management Science and Technology. I teach Strategic Management and Innovation, Management, and Organizational Theory at both undergraduate and graduate levels. 

My areas of expertise and research interests are at the intersection of strategy, innovation, and competitiveness. I have published in such Journals as the Strategic Management Journal, Journal of Management, Research Policy, Technovation, and R&D Management, among others. As of current, I have received more that 700 citations in the ISI Web of Knowledge, more than 900 in Scopus, and more than 3,100 in Google Scholar. I have served as ad hoc reviewer for such Journals as Research Policy, Organization Studies (for which I have also served in the Editorial Board between 2006-2008), Journal of Management Studies, Journal of Business Venturing, European Journal of Information Systems, Technovation, and more.   

I have recently published a book (in Greek) entitled “Innovation Management” used by the Hellenic Open University, where I also teach since 2004. I am currently involved in the scientific supervision of the translation of Christensen’s classic “The Innovator’s Dilemma” which is to be published by the Crete University Press later in 2021. Since 1997, I have been heavily involved, as senior analyst, in a number of large-scale, complex research projects dealing with aspects related to innovation. Many of these projects have been financed by the EU and resulted in academic publications. In addition, I have accumulated valuable, hands-on experience in the development and delivery of consulting services in support of innovation to private firms (mainly SMEs) in my capacity as external advisor (1997-2010) to the Hellenic Innovation Relay Center, a special unit of the National Research Foundation.
