About me

Marta Soprana is a Fellow in International Political Economy at LSE, where she teaches courses for undergraduate and graduate students on the political economy of trade.

She holds a PhD cum laude from Bocconi University, a Master in International law and Economics (MILE) summa cum laude from the World Trade Institute (WTI) in Bern, and a MA in International Relations and Diplomatic studies from the University of Bologna.

Her research interests fall into the field of international political economy, trade policy, trade in services, digital trade, cross-border data flows, artificial intelligence (AI), and law and technology. She is particularly interested in exploring the relationship between emerging technologies and international trade from a legal and policy perspective.

Prior to joining the LSE, she worked a trade policy advisor for several international organizations – including FAO, ITC, UNCTAD, UNESCAP, World Bank and WTO – and national governments, and supported private firms’ efforts to access and operate in foreign markets.
