I am an assistant professor at University College Dublin and at the Beijing-Dublin International College.

My researhc interests are economic history and development economics. My research focuses on understanding the long-run processes of economic development, cultural and political change. I am more specifically interested in education policies and state building in developing countries, especially in Africa. I am also interested in social mobility. My work often involves the creation of novel large datasets from historical archives or the precise geolocation of administrative data, and the study of historical shocks or "natural experiments".
