My main research interests lie in the area of skills formation within advancing economies. My recent empirical work has focused mainly on the nature of employee training and development in industrial SMEs in the context of Greece and the determinants of formal training provision, as well as informal learning within Greek small enterprises. I have conducted both quantitative and qualitative research around this area and my goal is to find out how training is implemented in small industrial firms in advancing economies (like Greece) and how it can contribute towards small firm success.
