Introduction
I work on the history of recent economics, especially labour and discrimination. I investigate the role of the material infrastructure of knowledge production and how it impacts the interface between science and policy. I also work on the role of values (epistemic and political) in the production and influence of ideas. I use an historical approach based on the analysis of ideas and practices of economits outside academia using a variety of (archival, oral) sources.
