About

I am a post doctoral researcher at the Department of Economic History, Lund University, an Associate Fellow at the Oxford Martin Programme on Technology and Employment, University of Oxford, and serve on the editorial board of Historisk Tidskrift.

My research interests are located at the intersection of economic geography, economic history, and urban economics and focuses on how technological advances—spanning the potato’s introduction in the 18th century, to the 19th-century railroads, to advances in Machine Learning in the 21st century—affects employment, inequality, and regional and urban growth. My ongoing and published work is available here, or through my Google Scholar and IDEAS RePEc profiles. 

In addition to my academic work, I have authored reports for organizations such as the IPPR, the Policy Network, and the RSA, and have worked as a consultant for the European Commission, the OECD, the Swedish Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation, and the United Nations. My research has repeatedly been covered in media outlets such as the BBC, The Economist, Financial Times, and the New York Times, as well as being cited by international organizations such as the World Bank.
