Research

My research interests are within economic history and business history. My main research area concerns (1) formal education and practical learning for innovation and economic performance, and how these played out in different industries and (2) access to education, educational opportunity and the historical impact of education on social mobility, and differences in this regard between genders and regions. I started a post-doc at the Department of Economic History where the main sources I use are Scandinavian student biographies from 1820s to 1975.
