Yuval Millo is a Professor of Social Studies of Finance and Management Accounting at the University of Leicester.
Prior to this he held positions at the London School of Economics and the University of Essex. Yuval graduated from the Science Studies Unit at the University of Edinburgh, where he wrote a PhD about the history of the Black-Scholes option pricing model and the evolution of financial derivatives markets. Yuval is a leading contributor to the emerging field of Social Studies of finance (SSF), which develops a unified analytical framework that includes elements from accounting, financial economics and sociology and analyses dynamics in and around financial markets. SSF pays particular attention to the technological and organizational infrastructure that affect price formation. Using a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods, Yuval’s current research includes the emergence of electronic trading in financial exchanges (with Daniel Beunza and Juan-Pablo Pardo-Guerra, LSE), the evolution of accounting standards for testing the impairment of assets (with Andrea Mennicken, LSE) and the rise of the Social Return On Investment methodology (with Emily Barman, Boston University and Matt Hall, LSE).
