Research
My research focuses on the economic and social history of England and Wales in the early modern period and during the early stages of industrialisation, roughly 1550-1850. Specific topics of past and current research are: occupational structure, by-employments, household consumption, and wealth distribution. I have special interests in: advanced quantitative methods in historical research; ‘big data’; correcting historical sources for wealth and social bias; the geography of historical change.
