I’m a medieval and early-modern historian interested in long-term spatial patterns in global socioeconomic developments (such as urbanisation, transformations of rural land use, and labour relations) and their interplay with environmental conditions. The application of digital humanities methods is dominant in my research, more recently GIS, HTR, and language processing in particular, although I have published on stylometry in the past as well.
