My main research interest lies in the analysis of political and market (supporting) institutions, their determinants, and how they interrelate one with another. I explore theoretical and applied models of institution building and State formation, with a focus on the causes and consequences of weak and strong States.
I am currently working on the link between the rise of the market economy and the process of local democratization, with an applications to medieval England.
