Nick read Psychology in the Panteion University of Athens. After he completed an MSc in Organisational and Economic Psychology in the same university, Nick moved to University College in London (UCL) where he did his PhD under the supervision of Nigel Harvey. In his doctoral research, Nick investigated the accuracy of post-decisional emotional anticipations and the impact of such anticipations on decision behaviours.
Nick moved to Imperial College and the CSRU in April 2004 as a post-doctoral research associate. In April 2006, he was appointed Lecturer (joint appointment between the CSRU and the UK's National Patient Safety Agency). Nick is investigating decision-related emotions, surgical decision-making in real and simulated operating theatres, and diagnostic error.
