Originally trained as an architect at the National Technical University of Athens, Thomaï received her doctorate in Art History & Archaeology from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University in 2005. She also holds an MBA from the Leonard N. Stern School of Business, New York University, with a specialization in corporate and quantitative finance (2009).
Thomaï is one of the main contributors to the LVMH Fundamentals in Luxury Retail: A CPC/Parsons Collaboration, an education program designed to train and provide a wide range of retail skills to Chinese-Americans. Along with Jonathan Faiers, Thomaï is co-editor of Luxury: History, Culture, Consumption a journal published by Bloomsbury Press.
Heavily drawing on her interdisciplinary training, Thomaï conceived of PIQluxury as a new type of information service that delivers marketing, consumer, and creative intelligence to a broad business audience. In combining these three fields, Thomaï promises to deliver cultural insights in a format that informs strategic thinking and inspires immediate action.
