Dr Mark Davis is Associate Professor of Sociology and Founding Director of the Bauman Institute at the University of Leeds. An economic sociologist, Mark is interested in the relationships between money, markets and morality. He is currently researching financial innovations that promise to enhance opportunities for citizens to deliver socially-beneficial outcomes by doing different things with their money, e.g. Crowdfunding, Alternative Currencies, and Responsible FinTech. Mark is a consultant to UK centre-left think tanks, chiefly Finance Innovation Lab, New Economics Foundation, and Compass. He’s just published a major report Financing for Society: Assessing the Suitability of Crowdfunding for the Public Sector (Davis & Cartwright, May 2019) and is co-leading a Horizon 2020 project evaluating the role of ‘prosumers’ in the Green Energy Transition.
