Katerina is a PhD Candidate at the European Institute, looking at how the so called ‘refugee crisis’ is handled in Greece and in Germany.
More specifically, she is making a comparison between state and non-state organisations in Athens and Berlin. Through participant observation and extensive qualitative interviews with individuals on the field, she explores the role of individual discretion in the implementation of European policies for refugees and migrants in the two cities. Her work brings together perspectives from sociology and social psychology into the field of public policy and public administration.
Katerina holds an MPhil in Social Psychology from Cambridge University (distinction), an MA in Sociology from University of California, Riverside, and a BA in Communication Studies from University of California, Riverside (cum laude).
She has a PhD scholarship from the Hellenic Observatory, and is also the Managing Editor of the GreeSE Working Paper Series.
