Dr Evrydiki (Eurydice) Fotopoulou

Eurydice’s research focuses on gender and macroeconomics, and in particular structural models that investigate income and wealth distribution inequality. She also works on the impact of the labour market and fiscal policies. Her research is interdisciplinary, drawing from economics, sociology and gender studies.

Recent collaborative research projects look into the effects of income, gender and wealth inequality, and economic policies on macroeconomic performance.

Eurydice has a PhD in Economics by the University of Greenwich, an MSc in the Political Economy of Development and a BSc in Development Economics from SOAS, University of London.

She has previously worked at the Greenwich Political Economy Research Centre, University of Greenwich, SOAS University of London, the NGO sector, the British Council and the public sector in China and Turkey.
