Biography

Having joined ERC in 2018 and more recently a member of the GEM UK national team, Anastasia’s current focus is entrepreneurship and small business economics investigating small firms’ financial constraints, performances and entrepreneurial attitudes and aspirations. She is passionate about giving policymakers the tools to understand the entrepreneurial experience including barriers to entrepreneurship, motivations of aspiring entrepreneurs as well as digital and innovative entrepreneurship.

Anastasia’s unique perspective is a product of a diverse background and understanding of macroeconomics and finance: she holds a PhD in Economics from the University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis (France), having previously completed an undergraduate degree in Banking and Finance and MSc in Macroeconomics. After her PhD, she worked on a post-doctoral research project financed by the European Investment Bank. The results of this research were published as a book Investment for Growth and Development in the Western Balkans, presented to institutions from a variety of nations and distributed at the Western Balkans Summit in Trieste in July 2017. Historically, Anastasia‘s research focused on economic and financial development, transition and emerging economies and efficiency and productivity analysis and she retains a keen interest in these areas.
