Gonzalo Pozo Martin is a lecturer in International Relations with a specialisation on International Political Economy at the Department of Economic History, Stockholms Universitet.

His research interests lie primarily in the socio-historical reconstruction of different problems in IPE and IR. More specifically, his work has followed two overlapping areas of interest: contemporary Russia and Eastern Europe and critical approaches to international political economy, especially around the geopolitics of capitalism and Marxist theory. He has published on imperialism, geopolitics and Marxism, and is a member of the advisory boards of Historical Materialism (BRILL) and Debatte (Taylor and Francis). He is also working on a biography of Isaac Deutscher, for which he has received a large grant from the Amiel and Melburn Trust.
