Dr Daniel Beunza

Assistant Professor of Management

Faculty Group: Organisational Behaviour


Dr Beunza is an Assistant Professor of Management and part of the Organisational Behaviour Faculty Group. His research in sociology explores the ways in which social relations and technology shape financial value. His award-winning study of a derivatives trading room on a Wall Street bank traces the roots of extraordinary returns to the use of space and internal organization. He has also studied securities analysts and the systemic risk posed by financial models. Along with other sociologists, Dr Beunza's research has led to the development of an emerging discipline, the social studies of finance, that challenges economic and behavioural understandings of finance by incorporating the role of social relations and technology.

Dr Beunza obtained his PhD from New York University and taught at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona) and Columbia Business School in New York City before joining LSE.
