 I am a second year S.J.D. student working on Bankruptcy Law and Private Law Theory. My main project is focused on the normative foundations of personal bankruptcy law in the U.S. and Canadian legal orders. I do also research on some side-projects on corporate bankruptcy especially in the U.S., currently working on the intersection of mass tort litigation and bankruptcy.

 I started my legal career in civil law countries (Greece and France), but I have transitioned towards the common law world with my LL.M. in Legal Theory at NYU School of Law and my S.J.D. at the University of Toronto. 

I am a lawyer in Greece and I spend some time lawyering in Greek and E.U. law, especially on restructuring consultation.

In my spare time I like to read moral and political philosophy as they tend to be really helpful in providing analytical tools in legal research. Other than that, I love reading on aesthetics and the philosophy of mind.
