Spyros is an Assistant Professor in Accounting at the Alliance Manchester Business School (AMBS) of The University of Manchester. His interests broadly lie in empirical accounting taxation research and are centred on two areas. First, Spyros is interested in exploring the economic consequences of taxation for corporations. In this regard, he researches the roles of the corporate tax rate, the corporate taxable income, and corporate tax planning in shaping economic firm-level outcomes. Second, he has an interest on the determinants and consequences of firms’ tax planning strategies. In the future, Spyros plans to extend his work on both areas, and also explore the role of accounting regulations in facilitating corporate taxation decisions.
Prior to joining academia, Spyros worked as a senior analyst for Ernst & Young, where he gained experience on Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), Mergers & Acquisitions (M&As), and Public to Private Transactions (P2Ps). Spyros earned a Ph.D in Accounting and Finance from AMBS. He also holds an M.Sc. in Accounting and Finance with high honours and a B.Sc. in Business Administration, both from Athens University of Economics and Business. In his free time, Spyros is a bookworm, swims, enjoys watching and playing basketball, and polishes his coding skills.
