Research and Teaching Interests
My research examines problems of economic development in the nineteenth century, outside the North Atlantic, and focuses on Mexico. I have researched and written on the role of institutions in economic development; on the intellectual and material bases of policy formation; and on the history of technological change. My research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the Instituto de Iberoamerica at the Universidad de Salamanca, and the Kellogg Institute of International Studies at Notre Dame.
I teach undergraduate and graduate courses on comparative economic history as well as on the history of Mexico and Latin America.
