I am a Professor of Economics at the University of Southern Denmark and a Research Fellow at the Centre for Economic Policy Research in London. I am also a Marie Curie Fellow at Utrecht University until September 2014. I have a doctoral degree in economics from the University of Copenhagen and one in economic history from Lund University. My main research area is long-run economic growth, with particular focus on the economic and demographic history of England. I also work with historical marriage data from Uganda with Felix Meier zu Selhausen. I organize the Sound Workshop and edit the Scandinavian Economic History Review joint with Alfred Reckendrees from the Copenhagen Business School.
