ABOUT ME

I have been a full professor since 2017 and throughout my training and earlier career, I have been an active member of the Groningen Growth and Development Centre at the University of Groningen. I am also one of the developers of the widely-used Penn World Table database, which provides information on comparative income and productivity around the world since 1950 and the Maddison Project Database with historical income data.
