About Me

Economic Historian of the Early Modern Atlantic. Having graduated from the LSE in 2016, I am presently a post doctoral fellow in the History Department at the University of Oldenburg, Germany. My research interests include the institutional foundations of long-distance trade, Quaker merchants, women’s Economic History, and the European Marriage Pattern.
