Alexander Tertzakian

PhD candidate in Economic History
Queens' College

I started out studying economics and mathematics at McGill University before completing my MSc in Economic History at the LSE in 2014. My Master's thesis was titled 'The rise of the British coal gas industry: commodity price considerations in the adoption of public gasworks in Britain between 1818 and 1847'.

My PhD is focused on the mechanization of the cotton textile industry in Britain c.1780-1850. I am analyzing mill-level archival data in order to examine the impacts that the introduction of new technologies and ways of working had on gendered employment, wages and time-use.
