Georgios Efthyvoulou joined the Department of Economics as a lecturer in 2012. He holds an MSc in Economics from University College London and a PhD in Economics from Birkbeck University of London. Before coming to Sheffield, he was a Research Fellow at the University of Birmingham, working on the SERVICEGAP project: a large-scale research project funded by the European Commission, considering the academic and policy concerns that arise from the increasing importance of the market service sector.
Georgios’ research interests lie in two areas: (i) international business and banking, focusing on the interplay between firms’ sources of finance, ownership structure, internationalization activities and performance; and, (ii) political economy, particularly how elections, ideological preferences, and political institutions shape political behaviour and policy choices. His current research explores the political and social determinants of (international and internal) migration and the relationship between terrorism, public attitudes and voting behaviour.
Georgios has published articles in leading economics, finance, and international business journals (including Journal of Banking and Finance, International Business Review, and Public Choice) and presented his work in several international conferences and policy workshops.
