Personal profile

Research

My research interests straddles the intersection of economic geography, economic history, and urban economics and focuses on how technological advances—spanning the potato’s introduction in the 18th century, to the 19th-century railroads, to advances in Machine Learning in the 21st century—affects employment, inequality, and regional and urban growth.

Teaching

I teach courses in economic history, innovation, and quantitative methods at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Outreach

To reach out, I have contributed to reports for the European Commission, the OECD, the Swedish Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation, and the United Nations. My research has repeatedly been covered in media outlets such as the BBC, The Economist, Financial Times, and the New York Times, as well as being cited by organizations such as the World Bank and the World Trade Organization.
