Graduate Computer, Electrical and Electronics Engineer of the National Technical University of Athens, I had my Master in Sociology of innovation before enrolling to Ph.D. study. My Ph.D. thesis, undertaken at Mines – ParisTech was about innovation on the Web (available at archives-ouvertes.fr and cnrs.fr, written in English and downloaded over 2600 times). There, I conceptualised the role of developers in the emergence of new industries. It has been a very early study from the perspective of Management Science on the phenomenon of developer innovation, its genealogy and the related organization forms for innovation (Hackathons, Online forums, Barcamps) and lead to the publication of the book “Les Développeurs” (FYP, 2015).
I have taught at Mines-ParisTech, ISC Paris, the National Technical University of Athens, the Shanghai Fudan University, the National School of Fine Arts in Athens) and I have presented my research work at different universities (ETH Zurich, École des Hautes Études En Sciences Sociales, MIT, Arizona State University, University of Athens, University of East London) and academic conferences (European Academy of Management, Open and User Innovation, European Group for Organization Studies, Innovation and Product Development Management Conference and other). My work is also published in international journals (Natures, Sciences et Sociétés, First Monday, International Journal of Organization Design and Engineering). I also have reviewed papers for academic journals and have mentored and evaluated startups at an international level and consulted companies in France and in Greece in innovation processes.
I’ve been visiting scholar at the Center for Organizational Research and Design of the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University and at the School of Chemical Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens. I’ve served as Vice-President of the Hellenic Organisation of Intellectual Property and have worked in the field of innovation management for startups and large enterprises.
I am currently working as Policy Analyst at the National Documentation Centre, Athens, Greece.
