Bruno is Lecturer in Political Economy. He did his undergraduate studies at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy, before moving to London to do his MSc and PhD at SOAS, University of London. He has taught at City University and the University of East London.

His doctoral research focussed on pension funds and their investments in emerging market economies. Financialisation, pension funds and developing countries feature prominently in his current research projects. A macro-financial economist by background, Bruno is keen on reaching out to the fields of political economy in addressing these issues. He has published his work in academic journals and presented it at a number of international conferences.

Bruno teaches modules in economics and political economy. He will also take on the role of programme leader for the BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from the academic year 2017-18.
