Bernardo Rangoni is Fellow in European and Comparative Political Economy at the London School of Economics (LSE). He has been awarded Marie Curie as well as Max Weber Fellowships. He first arrived at the LSE to study for an MSc Regulation, building upon the education initially received in his home country. After visiting Yale Law School, he earned a PhD in Political Science from the LSE.
His research has appeared (or is forthcoming) in the Journal of European Public Policy, Regulation & Governance, Governance, a Handbook on Theories of Governance, and his first monograph – to be published by Oxford University Press.
Substantively, Bernardo concentrates on key contemporary public policy challenges, including the authorization and monitoring of innovative medicines that are both effective and safe, societal transformation via digitalisation and regulation of powerful tech giants, financial regulation that serves the economy and society at large, and regulation facilitating the transition towards more competitive and sustainable energy systems.
He has taught, mentored, supervised and marked on political economy, regulation, and research design and methods at the LSE, University of Amsterdam, Moscow State University, and King’s College London, and has delivered ad hoc lectures at LUISS, Queen Mary University of London, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, and Hertie School of Governance.
Prior and in parallel to his academic career, he has engaged with policy makers and business leaders by working as lobbyist for the Union of the European Electricity Industry and as consultant for Oxford Economic Research Associates.
