Personal profile

I joined the University of Bristol in 2014 as Reader (Associate Professor) in Economics. I am also affiliated with CESifo, ifw Kiel, IZA and SERC. 

My research interests include Urban Economics, Political Economy, Environmental Economics and Economic History. In my research, I look at spatial disparities in the distribution of consumptive or productive amenities that attract individuals or firms. In turn, this helps me explain spatial variation in house prices, the share of high-skilled workers, innovative activities and entrepreneurship, or economic development. Another stream of research focuses on causes and consequences of regional disparities in voting behavior. To establish causality I often study historic developments that explain present-day economic outcomes. This explains my interest in economic history. Here is my CV.
