Biography

Evangelos Dioikitopoulos is a Lecturer in Economics at King’s College London. He holds a PhD from the Athens University of Economics and Business, an MRes from the European University Institute and has recently held a visiting research scholar position at the Department of Economics at Brown University in US. He also previously held the post of lecturer at the Department of Economics at Brunel University.

Evangelos's research focuses on Growth Theory, Dynamic Optimal Taxation, Macroeconomic Dynamics and Fiscal Policy, Development Economics, Environmental Economics and Behavioural Macroeconomics. In particular, he has explored alternative growth policies in population aging societies; he explored the fiscal policy implications of the hypothesis of endogenous subjective discounting on economic growth, environmental quality, and obesity rates. His more recent research focuses on how the emergence of land property rights and the duality in subsistence consumption during the Malthusian era affected the transition of economies to industrialization and their contemporary economic performance.

Evangelos teaches Advanced Mathematics for Economists and Economic Growth at King's,  and has taught Principles of Economics, Mathematical Economics, Labour Economics, Advanced Macroeconomics and Growth Theory on BSc and Master’s programmes in UK and European universities.
