Aleksandra Dul

PhD student in History

I am a PhD student in History supervised by Paul Warde, and a member of the Cambridge Group for the History of Population and Social Structure. My studies are funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and the Cambridge Trust. I completed an MA in History at Jagiellonian University and an MPhil in Economic and Social History at Cambridge. I am a co-convenor of the Cambridge Quantitative History Seminar.

Through researching the industrial development of a Central European coalfield in the late 19th century, I study the influence of natural endowments, market factors and national institutions in shaping economic growth trajectories.
