- Economic History
My research focus on economic history of pre-colonial and colonial Africa. More specifically, I am engaged in issues related to long-term agrarian change, rural labour relations/institutions and structural change.
I am also involved in a larger project that tries to capture and compare changes in the occupational structure in 20th century Africa in a global history context. The project is lead by Prof. Leigh Taylor-Shaw and Prof. Gareth Austin at Cambridge University.
I have been interviewed by Swedish Radio and frequently give public lectures
I am also the co-founder (together with Morten Jerven) of the African Economic History Network and editor of the the network's working paper series. See more on: www.aehnetwork.org
I teach methods in development studies and global economic history and African economic history at bachelor level. I also teach African economic history at Masters level.
