dr. P.J. Woltjer, MSc
I am a post-doctoral researcher and part of the Groningen Growth and Development Centre at the University of Groningen. I studied economics at the same university, where I obtained my MSc in 2007 and my PhD in 2013. As an economic-historian, I am interested in the underlying fundamentals of economic growth. The search for these drivers behind long-run growth have taken me from the study of productivity growth in the United States, the diffusion of technology in Europe, to the impact of international trade and development in Africa. My research focuses mostly on the twentieth century, but has in the past expanded to the nineteenth and late eighteenth century.
