Angelos is Lecturer in Politics and International Relations at the School of Social Sciences. He studied in Greece (University of Athens BA, MSc) and Holland (Leiden University MA) and holds a doctorate in politics from the European University Institute in Florence. In the past he held teaching and research positions at LSE and King's College London. In 2018-19 he was Berggruen-Weatherhead research fellow in the Global Populism cluster of the Weatherhead Center at Harvard and, immediately prior to joining London Met, a Fulbright-Schuman scholar at SAIS Johns Hopkins. Next to his academic positions he has worked at, and remains affiliated, with various think tanks specializing in European affairs. He is an Associate Fellow of the Europe Programme of Chatham House and a Research Associate of the Martens Centre in Brussels.
Angelos' teaching interests lie in politics and international relations broadly defined, with prior teaching experience and substantial expertise in EU studies, European politics, foreign policy analysis and comparative politics. Reflecting his ongoing research interests, he will develop modules on, among others, the external relations of the EU and populism in world politics to be taught at both UG and PG levels at London Met.
