My research focus on long-run regional and industry growth. I have conducted analysis to assess the role of natural resources, the extent of the market, agglomeration economies, institutions, technical change, market integration and regional convergence. I am specifically interested in the role of historical infrastructure investments such as railroads and town plantations. I am also interested in the long-term evolution of regional inequality and have constructed regional GDP per capita data that go back to the 16th century.
