About Me

I am a DPhil student at Nuffield College at the University of Oxford. I am an economic and social historian with a background in economics. I work on tracing economic inequality in the pre-industrial era across the German-speaking lands. My research is based on (mostly urban) wealth tax registers from archives across Germany.
