Short presentation

Finished my Phd in 2011. Are previously working as a post-doc in the project Copper in the Early-Modern World: A Comparative study of Work and Everyday Life in Falun and Røros. My research is dealing with Falun Copper Mine during the 18th century, on one hand emphasizing on the commodity chain and the market for Swedish copper and brass, on the other, investigating the effects of the dramatic changes in copper production that occurred.
