I am a researcher in quantitative social science, with a special interest in the application of advance quantitative techniques in large-scale, empirical driven research, seeking to assess peer effects and contextual influences on cognitive and affective domains in childhood and adolescence. I earned a 1st class honours in Pure Mathematics (University of Cyprus). I then went to Oxford where I completed an MSc in Applied Statistics – a degree with a focus on applications of Statistics using R programming language – and a second MSc in Educational Research Methodology. During my doctorate studies (Oxford University Department of Education, 2009-2014), I worked under the supervision of Herbert W. Marsh (Professor at Australian Catholic University, Emeritus Professor at Australian Catholic University and founder of the International SELF Research Centre). My research has so far received several awards and grants, among others, the 2015 Bruce Choppin Memorial award and the 2017 AERA travel award grant. In addition, it has been published in major scientific journals (SESI, Journal of Educational Psychology, Learning & Instruction) and it has attracted funding from major funding bodies (e.g. the Economic Social Research Council, UK and the Research Promotion Foundation, Cyprus). As well as doing research, I very much enjoy teaching Research Methodology and Quantitative Methods courses to both undergraduate and postgraduate students in Education, Psychology, and allied fields. I have extensive experience in teaching Distance Learning – as well as conventional courses.
