I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Economic History Department (School of Economics and Management Studies) at Lund University. I obtained a dual PhD from the University of Geneva and Uppsala University. Before joining Lund University I was a Visiting Scholar at the Faculty of History of the University of Cambridge and a Visiting Professor at the Centro de Estudios Historicos, El Colegio de México, thanks to the Eugène Choisy and Charles Borgeaud postdoctoral fellowhip from the Société Académique de Genève.  I am a Member of the Paul Bairoch Institute of Economic History at the University of Geneva and a Life Member of Wolfson College, Cambridge. I am the author of European Banks and the Rise of International Finance: the Post-Bretton Woods Era (London and New York 2016). My interests lie in post-war international financial history in the West and in the developing world.
