I am broadly interested in the economic and social history of the late medieval Mediterranean (c. 1000-1450) with a focus on medieval Catalonia, medieval urbanization, trade and artisans and the development of the late medieval cloth industry. I also have a particular interest in the definition and interconnection of medieval regions, and on the imposition of political boundaries in the creation and redefinition of territory. My dissertation examines the economy and economic connections of the Pyrenean town of Puigcerdà between 1260 and 1360.
