Professor of Finance, Kogod School of Business, American University

Valentina Bruno is Professor of Finance and Kogod Research Professor at American University, Kogod School of Business. She holds a Master in Finance and Economics and a Ph.D. in Finance from the London School of Economics. Before joining American University, she worked at the World Bank in the Financial Sector Strategy and Policy Group and in the International Finance Team. Professor Bruno is Research Fellow at the Center for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) and Faculty Research Member at the European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI). She has studied topics at the intersection of macroeconomics and finance and opened new lines of inquiry into how global financial markets interact with the real economy. At the heart of Professor Bruno’s research lies the idea of “global liquidity” where she studies the economic channels through which global liquidity asserts itself in macro-finance and affects economic activity, financial systems, and global stability. Her recent work focuses on the role of the US dollar in the transmission of global financial conditions. Professor Bruno’s scholarship has been widely cited in the media and within policy circles, combining economic theory and empirical evidence to inform policy making and regulatory work. Her research has been published in several leading academic journals such as the Review of Economic Studies, Review of Financial Studies, and the Journal of Monetary Economics.
