Profiel

I am interested in the long run evolution of income distribution and inequality, as well as that of poverty on a global scale. In my research I consider the role of prices as of essential importance in both the identification of global absolute poverty, and in the estimation of income inequality in real terms. I prefer delivering the poverty and inequality estimates as they ought to, which means with an appropriate error term. This is the reason I lately delve into Monte Carlo pseudo-experiments in order to investigate the statistical significance of the evolution in poverty and inequality.

An additional line of research interests, not unrelated to poverty and inequality, is the measurement and evolution of wellbeing using a composite index.

I am also involved in the Clariah-project, as a curator for the Clio Infra website.

Project:
CLARIAH - Structured Data Hub
01-01-2015 tot 31-12-2019
Algemene projectbeschrijving 

As part of the large-scale CLARIAH project, the Structured Data Hub aims to connect and provide access to structured datasets containing socio-economic and demographic data. The project will also enable the visualisation and analysis of these data, in order to help find answers to important questions about inequality in the world and about historical demography.


CLARIAH (Common Lab Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities) is a consortium of over 40 partners – including all Dutch humanities research institutes, university libraries, heritage institutions, public organisations and businesses – which develops tools for the humanities, in order to facilitate the use of the increasingly large amounts of available digital data.


For more information, see the CLARIAH website.

Project:
Clio Infra - Research Infrastructure for the study of Global Inequality 01-01-2011 tot 31-12-2015
Algemene projectbeschrijving

In the Clio Infra project, various institutes and scientists are working together to answer questions surrounding global economic growth and inequality. To answer these questions they need information about causes and patterns of economic development, which is why the Clio Infra project is aimed at collecting and sharing data sets on the most important indicators of economic development. This data can be used to explain how and why global inequality came into existence and how it has developed.


For more information, see the project website.


For more information about the thematic data hubs that are part of the larger Clio Infra framework, have a look at the Clio Infra hubs page at the Centre for Global Economic History.
