My name is Menelaos Tasiou, and I am a Senior Lecturer in Quantitative Methods and Data Analytics at the School of Accounting, Economics and Finance. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Economics (University of Crete, Greece), a Master's degree in Banking and Finance (Surrey Business School), and a PhD in Economics and Finance (Portsmouth Business School).

Research interests

My research lies in the intersection of Finance, Decision Analysis and Management Science and revolves around quantitative modelling of decision-making, and empirical corporate finance and banking applications. My interests are in the areas of corporate finance, financial institutions, and sustainable finance. These deal with a variety of topics such as: firm efficiency, performance and risk; credit scoring and ESG analytics modelling; corporate governance and behaviours arising from collective norms and cultural traits.
