Long -Run Development, Political Economics, Economic History and Demography
I study the theoretical and empirical political economics and the determinants of long-term development from a multi-disciplinary perspective. I am interested, in particular, in understanding the interactions between political institutions, demography, and cultural values; I worked on the role of long-term exposure to human pathogens and the determinants of conflicts.
