  • Economic History


My primary research interests are in economic development, political economy and African economic history. My doctoral research centers on understanding the historical roots of inequality by investigating long-term trends and drivers of national and regional income inequality for colonial and post-colonial Ghana. I focus on the income distribution effects of cash cropping, regional and gender disparities in education, differential access to land and credit, and tax policies.
