Dr Alexander Tziamalis PhD, MSc, MA, BSc

Senior Lecturer

Summary

Senior Lecturer in Economics and the Recruitment Leader for Economics courses at Sheffield Hallam University. 

Having a genuine interest not just in Economics but also in the Social Sciences more widely, I studied Economics at an undergraduate and postgraduate level in Athens and I continued my studies at London School of Economics where I did a second Master's degree in Social Psychology. I then won a scholarship at the University of Sheffield to pursue my studies on a doctoral level. My PhD topic was on Skilled Migration to the UK. 

After my doctoral research I worked full-time as an Analyst in the UK Civil Service (2009-2012). There, I was involved in the design, initial data gathering, external commisioning and finally the quality assurance of four major research projects. The projects dealt with change in Pensions, the reformation of the Welfare State and the provision of Skills. In 2012 I resigned from the Civil Service to take up an appointment as a Lecturer in Economics at Sheffield Hallam University. 

I specialise in the teaching of Macroeconomics and Behavioural Economics and I am typically the module leader in 4 modules across all undergraduate levels. I am passionate about offering an exciting educational experience to my students and I feel particularly proud that students consistently put me forward for the Inspirational Teacher Award every year. 

My research interests include Macroeconomic externalities and imperfections, Behavioural Economics and alternative economic theories. Apart from my work in the classroom, I contribute to knowledge through articles in referred journals and news-sites. 

I am a very friendly and open person so please don't hesitate to contact me with a question about anything.
