Bruno has gained the Associate Fellowship of The Higher Education Academy as recognition of his sound work facilitating learning.
He researches marginalisation and lived-experiences in the context of institutional practice, particularly austerity. He takes a hermeneutic phenomenological approach and uses qualitative methodologies, especially creative and visual methods.
Bruno's specialist teaching areas are social psychology, psychology of crime, well-being and community psychology. He likes to teach psychology as a subject that questions current social issues and aims at bringing institutional practices into account, and aims to make links between policies and lived-experiences experiences. Bruno likes to bring different media (art, film, advertising, news and policies) to illustrate ideas and concepts in psychology. He teaches psychology aimed at applying the principles of critical pedagogy by encouraging his students to interrogate society - he doesn't see his students as a bank where he deposits knowledge, but as co-producers of knowledge.
