Biography

Spyros Galanis has held academic positions at the University of Southampton (Lecturer and Associate Professor) and City, University of London (Senior Lecturer, Reader and Head of Department). He received his PhD from the University of Rochester in 2008, his MSc from the University of Warwick in 2002 and his BSc from the Athens University of Economics and Business in 2001, all in Economics.

His main research focuses on the role that uncertainty, information and bounded perception have on single- and multi-agent decision making. He examines under which conditions speculative trade occurs and whether information is valuable, in three different settings: when traders have a bounded perception of their uncertainty due to their unawareness, when they are dynamically and time inconsistent, and when they are not financially sophisticated enough to formulate complex trading strategies.

His work has been in published in journals such as the Journal of Economic Theory, Games and Economic Behavior, and Economic Theory, among others. He has been awarded an ESRC grant, on the forecasting efficiency of prediction markets, that runs between 2021 and 2024.
