Research

My research interests are in the fields of economic and historical demography, with a focus on Africa. My expertise is in working with large historical demographic databases. This has most recently included the digitisation of the South African Genealogical Registers, which formed the basis of my doctoral dissertation: A Demographic History of Settler South Africa. I am currently working on the Cape of Good Hope Panel Project: Quantitative studies of long-term growth, inequality and labour coercion in a developing region. The goal of the project is to construct the first ever multi-generational panel data set for a developing region (the Cape Colony c. 1665-1840).
