Paolo Brunori has been an Assistant Professorial Research Fellow at the International Inequalities Institute at LSE since July 2021. His research focuses on inequalities, in particular, the type of inequality that people tend to perceive as unfair. In the last decade, Paolo has done his best to try to answer an apparently simple question: can we measure inequality of opportunity? There are many theoretical and empirical challenges to find an answer and his research is still in progress.
Paolo received his PhD in Economics from University of Bari in 2008, and before that, he graduated in Political Science from the Cesare Alfieri School at the University of Florence. Paolo was a research assistant at the European University Institute in 2009 and became assistant professor in economics at the University of Bari in 2011. He has been lecturing at the University of Florence and the New York University Global Programme between 2017 and 2021.
