Ionna Kokores Ph.D.

For our June member of the month, we welcome Ioanna T. Kokores. Dr. Kokores is a lecturer in “Monetary Theory and Policy” in the Department of Economics, at the University of Piraeus (Athens, Greece). She received her Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Birmingham (UK) under a scholarship from the Greek State Scholarship Foundation awarded after an annual national examination process. She also holds an M.Sc. Economics from the same school, and a B.Sc. Economics from the Athens School of Economics and Business (Greece).

Her current research focuses on issues concerning monetary policy and financial stability; the effects of choice under ambiguity in the functioning of the financial system and the conduct of monetary policy; the coordination of monetary and macroprudential policies; international monetary relations; and corporate governance in the banking sector.

Why did you become a member of the International Atlantic Economic Society?:

I am grateful to have been acquainted with IAES’ elaborate efforts to promote high-calibre research when I attended, as a final-year undergraduate, the 51st International Atlantic Economic Conference in Athens, Greece, 2001, co-organised with the Hellenic Economic Association (Greece). Thereon, when I pursued my doctoral studies I utilized research disseminated via the IAES’ academic journals and also advanced my research through presentations at the IAES’ Conferences. Currently working in academia, I value greatly the opportunities provided by IAES membership.

What do you find most enjoyable about your membership?

I am grateful to be part of a network of distinguished professionals pursuing research and policy analysis in all areas of expertise in the broader field of economics.

Have you held any notable positions within the IAES, (Officer, Board of Editors, Program Committee, etc.) if so, when?:


What types of projects/research are you working on and what inspired/motivated you to pursue that interest?:

My current research (theoretical and empirical) draws from the shift in macroeconomic consensus effected after the global financial turmoil and mainly investigates the conduct of monetary policy with financial stability concerns under ambiguity. 

What advice would you give to someone who is considering entering your line of work/field of study?:

To be keen on following the current growing policy debate -which remains inconclusive- without failing to invest in novel ideas, yet capitalizing on established principles.
