Christoforos holds a BSc in International and European Economic Studies from Athens University of Economics and Business and a Master of Arts in Social and Political Thought from the University of Warwick. He has also been awarded a PhD in Sociology at the University of Edinburgh. Prior to joining the Centre for People and Organisation, he worked as a Research Associate at Adam Smith Business School, The University of Glasgow, and as a Teaching Assistant in Sociology at the University of Edinburgh.
His main research interests lie in the interrelations between philosophy, sociological theory, social psychology and organisation studies. More specifically, Christoforos has explored the ideas of: a) key authors in critical realism, such as Roy Bhaskar, Margaret Archer, Douglas Porpora, Tony Lawson, Dave Elder-Vass and Andrew Sayer, b) Pierre Bourdieu, as well as other authors working on the concepts of routine action and habitual practices, c) Cornelius Castoriadis and other theorists who have analysed the notion of social imaginary and reflective imagination and, d) key authors in the traditions of social constructionism and interpretivism.
