Kristian Bondo Hansen

I am an Assistant Professor on the ERC funded interdisciplinary research project ‘Algorithmic Finance: Inquiring into the reshaping of financial markets’. My research focuses on the use of technology in finance; more specifically, the use of machine learning algorithms in investment management and trading firms. I study human-machine interactions and the implications introducing sophisticated machine learning techniques have on practices of trading and managing investments.

Primary research areas
  • Social studies of finance
  • Intellectual history
  • Sociology of ideas
