Stavros Poupakis

Lecturer in Health Economics, UCL

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Economics at the Institute for Global Health, University College London. My research focuses on health economics. I study child development and health inequalities during childhood and take an interest in policy evaluation aimed at reducing inequality and improving children’s development. In a related research agenda, I study the effects of globalization through its impact on trade and political networks across both developing and developed countries.

I joined the UCL Institute for Global Health as a Lecturer in Economics in 2020. Previously, I held research positions at the Oxford Martin School at the University of Oxford and the Department of Economics at UCL. I earned a PhD in Economics from the University of Essex in 2018. Apart from my academic appointments, I have also collaborated with several international organizations, such as the Healthy Weight Partnership, the World Bank, and the IEA, OECD.
