I am a post-doctoral researcher and assistant professor in economic and social history. My research interests include quantitative methods, the measurement of wellbeing, public services, and the link between family organisation and economic development.

My PhD thesis is on the provision of public services in the late-medieval period. You can find it here. This working paper and this forthcoming EHR article give an overview of this line of work.
I'm also doing post-doctoral research in the Agency Project. Specifically, I'm working on global datasets on family systems, historical wellbeing measurement, and the historical determinants of gender equality.
I am also involved in the Clariah-project.
