Emiliano is a PhD student in economic history at King’s College, Cambridge and a member of the Cambridge Group for the History of Population and Social Structure (CAMPOP). He works on Latin American, comparative, and global economic history in the 19th and 20th centuries, focusing on natural resources, agriculture and energy. His PhD research, supervised by Gareth Austin, centres on economic development and the environment in Uruguay before 1914. Alongside his PhD, he is also working on structural change in northern Nigeria in the 20th century.
Originally from Uruguay, Emiliano has been studying economic history since his masters degree at Universidad de la República in Montevideo (2015). He also spent time at the UN’s Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean in Santiago (Chile), before taking an MPhil (with Distinction, and also in economic history) at Cambridge (2016). He is particularly interested in spatial analysis techniques and comparative methods, and, more broadly, in bridging the gap between economic and environmental history.
