  • Economic History

Research

My research focus on economic history of pre-colonial and colonial Africa. More specifically, I am engaged in issues related to long-term agrarian change, rural labour relations/institutions and structural change.

I am also involved in a larger project that tries to capture and compare changes in the occupational structure in 20th century Africa in a global history context. The project is lead by Prof. Leigh Taylor-Shaw and Prof. Gareth Austin at Cambridge University.
