I hold a PhD in International Relations from University College London (2016) where I also worked as a Teaching Assistant for four years receiving excellent feedback. During that time I received my Postgraduate Teaching Certificate from the Institute of Higher Education of the University of London. Besides my teaching experience I have published a monograph (The Geopolitics of Region Building in the Black - A Critical Examination, London: Routledge), a series of academic peer reviewed articles while I have also contributed to edited volumes. This demonstrates that, besides an in-depth understanding of the subjects that I teach, I also pay attention in my teaching to academic writing and overall academic research. Last but not least, I have worked in different capacities in the policy sector and since 2015 I have been working as a Senior Analyst for an investment firm analysing geopolitical trends and developments in the world.
I teach a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses pertaining to the broad fields of Political Science, International Relations and International Political Economy, including among others, Theories of International Relations, Foreign Policy Analysis, Comparative Politics, Politics and Society in Central and Eastern Europe, Institutions and Policies of the European Union, Emerging Market Economies, European Security, Sociology, Media Studies, and Qualitative Methods. Based on the excellent feedback I have received from students, both inside and outside the university, and their request to help them with other modules I have also taught courses on History (e.g. History of the Soviet Union, Cold War, etc.) and Culture (e.g. Russian Cinema, European Literature, etc.) thus broadening my teaching area expertise.
I had an incredbly beneficial class with Yannis today, I cannot recommend his services enough, his attention to detail is amazing.
I had a really useful today with Yannis, I now feel confident and happy to continue with my work.
