I work as an assistant professor in Economic History at the Economic and Environmental History Group (Wageningen University).

My research focuses on the historical roots of global health inequality and their implications for global welfare disparities. I am also the founder of Long-Run Health Matters, a research portal on the origins of global health inequality.

I am currently conducting a project on the determinants of clean water and sanitation since 1850 from a global perspective, funded by the Dutch Research Council.
