Personal profile


My current research focuses consist of two main areas of interest.

First, I examine the drivers, determinants, and long-term implications of missionary work in Sub Saharan Africa. While exploring missionary and colonial archives, I derive insights on the persistent effects of early education and health care efforts for Sub Saharan Africa's development path since the 19th century. The aim of this research is to create a more profound understanding of historical demographic, educational, and medical dynamics in Africa, which provides a necessary component in the study of the present population boom and development process.

Second, I assess both the value added and the global greenhouse gas emissions embodied in trade within globally fragmented production processes from the late 20th century onwards. In doing so, I have specialized in the analysis of global value chains with the use of input-output analysis.
