My Ph.D. examined rural labour markets in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century England. In particular, regional unemployment and two-layered labour markets of agricultural workers were explored. I am currently carrying out further research on female job opportunities and the occupational structure in the first half of the nineteenth century.
