Kris Fuzi is a Research Fellow and Research Theme Lead (Risk and Financial Wellbeing in Later Life) for the Centre on Household Assets and Savings Management (CHASM) within the Department of Social Policy, Sociology and Criminology, developing and undertaking research into issues associated with inequalities, insecurities, and uncertainties in later life financial wellbeing. 

His research interests and expertise centre on everyday precarious contexts such as work, housing, relationships, and gender inequality, and how the connections between these shape financial decisions.

His PhD explores how precarious workers’ pension and saving decisions are shaped by the contextual precarity of their everyday lives.  Kris maintains a focus on the application of relational sociological theory to understand the social world and has employed a mixed methodology of qualitative interviews and financial diaries to better understand individuals’ everyday financial lives.

Before joining CHASM, Kris worked as a Research Associate for the Centre for Personal Financial Wellbeing (CPFW) at Aston University and a Teaching Assistant within the Sociology Department at the University of Manchester.
