Detailed Research Interests:
Broadly, I am interested in the economic growth of the British Empire from colonial expansion to its twentieth century collapse. My research looks at the economic growth of ‘Settler Economies’ (Canada, Australia, New Zealand, & South Africa) in a comparative context. Areas of interest include the rise of manufacturing, changes in trade policy and international relations, the influence of foreign technology and capital flows, the significance of resource exports and their linkages into industry and services. My Phd dissertation focused on British ‘Settler Economies‘ during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century and utilised non-parametric frontier analysis to measure relative total factor producitivty.
