Portrait of the artist as a young man.

I’m a writer, student, and economic historian at the University of California, Berkeley. I also write a weekly newsletter, Economic History Research, which reviews the latest papers in the field. In my spare time, you’ll probably find me running—or skiing, if no one plows the road in the morning.

I am the proud winner of an Emergent Ventures grant for my professional development as an economic historian.

If you would like to support my writing and research, please consider buying me a coffee. Anything helps.

My research focuses on early modern Europe, chiefly the origins of the Industrial Revolution and the Great Divergence. I’ve been primarily working to create historical datasets by scanning textual documents; you can find some of this data, along with select publications, linked here.
