My current research focuses consist of two main areas of interest.
First, I examine the drivers, determinants, and implications of missionary work in Sub Saharan Africa. While exploring missionary, colonial archives, and micro-level church records, I derive insights on the demographic dynamics as well as the long-term effects of early education and health care efforts for Sub Saharan Africa since the 19th century. The aim of this research is to create a more profound understanding of historical demographic, educational, and medical dynamics in Africa, which provides a necessary component in the study of the present population boom and development process.
Second, I assess both the value added and the global greenhouse gas emissions embodied in trade within globally fragmented production processes from the late 20th century onwards. In doing so, I have specialized in the analysis of global value chains with the use of input-output analysis.
