Currently on research leave (August 2018 to July 2019).

I am an economic historian with research interests in banking crises, corporate governance, cultural economics, and demographic change. My research mostly addresses issues in the business and financial history of the Netherlands in the early twentieth century, and the economic and social history of Ireland in the nineteenth century.

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at Queen's Management School, Queen's University Belfast, a Research Associate at the university's Centre for Economic History, and an Associate Fellow at its Institute of Irish Studies.

Before joining Queen's, I was a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence. I completed a PhD at the London School of Economics in 2011, and I was an undergraduate student at the University of Bristol. I have been a visiting scholar at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Universiteit Utrecht, Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam, and the University of California, Davis.

I will be a Fellow of the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study, Amsterdam, between February and July 2019.
