I am an economic and social historian and researcher with a special interest in historical demography and family history. I have published on infant and childhood mortality, female labour participation, adoption practices, social epidemiology, family and care systems, children and violence, and on the link between religion, health and (cause specific) mortality. Focus lies on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
