I am an applied economist working on topics in urban economics, development economics, and economic history. The core of my current work investigates questions that are relevant today, but difficult to answer in a modern context. I do so by exploiting unique historical episodes and by collecting unique data. I enjoy the process of locating data and applying GIS and other spatial techniques to implement my empirical studies.
