Professor Suprinyak joined AUP in 2021, after working for 10 years at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG), in Brazil. He was also a visiting fellow at the University of Chicago, Duke University, and Université Lumière Lyon 2, and a guest lecturer at the University of Barcelona and the Higher School of Economics in Moscow. He was a founding member of the Latin American Society for the History of Economic Thought (ALAHPE), and currently serves as co-editor of Research in the History of Economic Thought and Methodology. He is also a co-founder and co-host of Smith and Marx Walk into a Bar: A History of Economics Podcast.

Suprinyak specializes in the history of political economy, with background training in economic theory, economic methodology, and economic history. His research explores the intersections between economics and politics in different historical contexts: early modern arguments about trade policy, the reconstruction of the world order in interwar Europe, and the shaping of the economics profession in Latin America during the Cold War.

Besides numerous papers in peer-reviewed journals, Suprinyak is co-editor of The Political Economy of Latin American Independence (Routledge, 2017) and Political Economy and International Order in Interwar Europe (Palgrave, 2020). His scholarship was recognized with two prestigious awards: the 2017 Craufurd Goodwin Best Article in the History of Economic Prize, awarded by the History of Economics Society, and the 2019 ESHET Young Researcher Award, given by the European Society for the History of Economic Thought for outstanding contributions to the history of economics by scholars under 40 years of age.
