Personal profile

Research

In the coming years my general aim in research is to contribute to the knowledge of how and to what extent public institutions and scientific knowledge are responsible for the improvements in life expectancy and economic growth throughout 19th-20th-century in developed countries. A truly long-term perspective, in particular a life-course approach, will receive a heavy focus in my research. I intend to exploit Scandinavian countries as a venue for causal investigations about the significance of induced public efforts and medical innovations.
