Personal profile


My research lies at the intersection between economic history and historical demography, with a focus on Africa, and aims to understand the interplay between population dynamics and socioeconomic development in former colonial societies. My expertise is in working with large historical demographic databases. I currently divide my time between two projects: The origins of health inequalities in Sub-Saharan Africa, 1900-1960, and The establishment, growth, and legacy of a settler colony: Quantitative panel studies of the political economy of Cape Colony.
