I am a lecturer in economics at the Economics Division of Leeds University Business School. I graduated in economics at University of Bologna in 2001 and I gained a PhD degree in history of economic thought at University of Florence in 2008. While I had an orthodox training, I have always been interested in alternate schools, theories, and models. My MSc dissertation was focused on the Second Volume of Marx's Capital, and my PhD thesis dealt with the Theory of Monetary Circuit. Before moving to Leeds, I worked as research and teaching fellow for the universities of Bergamo, Pavia and Insubria (Varese). Currently my areas of expertise are: theories of value and distribution, macroeconomic dynamics, monetary economics, and history of economic thought. I have authored a number of articles in scientific journals, such as the Cambridge Journal of Economics, the Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, the Review of Political Economy, and Metroeconomica. I have also authored some chapters in collective volumes, as well as reviews, popular articles and books. I am married to Marica Grego who is a PhD student at the Leeds University Business School. Finally, I am a member of the editorial staff of Economia e Politica.
