I’m a PhD student working with Scandinavian economic history at Lund University in Sweden. I previously worked as an economist and strategic adviser within government in Australia, before moving to Denmark in 2018 to undertake a master’s degree in economics.
- long-term economic growth and productivity
- human capital, particularly the role of education
- economic history
- macroeconomic theory
I’m attached to a research project on human capital acquisition across Denmark, Norway and Sweden during the period 1880-1920. The project uses individual-level records to track the background, education and work experience of students to better understand changes in employers’ demands for worker skills during a period of significant economic development.
The project is funded by Handelsbanken Research Foundation.
