Research Interests

My doctoral thesis focuses on reconstructing patterns of female and male employment in France over the period of industrialisation, focusing on the period 1792-1901. Recent work on the British case has suggested that including female data in analyses is central to our understanding of both the chronology and mechanisms of industrialisation: my research aims to provide an additional comparative perspective on the topic, as well as a new avenue into debates on the 'French path' to industrialisation. Through selected case studies, I also aim to investigate historical determinants of female labour force participation rates and their evolution. 

I am particularly interested in how gendered historical perspectives on economic processes can enable us to question and rework economic theory in context. 

My studies are funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
