José Ossandón is Associate Professor in Organization of Markets at the Department of Organization, Copenhagen Business School. He was educated as a sociologist at P. Universidad Católica in Chile and was awarded a PhD at the Centre for Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths University of London. His work relates to developments in economic sociology and anthropology, organization and science and technology studies, and social theory. His current research focuses on two main areas. The first area is ‘market design’, in particular, what he calls ‘the work put to make markets work’. He studies new areas of expertise that claim to enable markets to solve matters of collective concerns. The second is domestic finance. He would like to help bridging between studies of households’ mundane economic practices and analyses of the calculative devices produced by financial firms. He has edited several books and special issues with work in various international journals and books and he initiated the collective blog Estudios de la Economia.
