Matthew Curtis


I am an economic historian and an Assistant Professor at the University of Southern Denmark.

My research uses parish records and genealogical data to study demography and human capital.

I earned my PhD in Economics at the University of California, Davis in 2021. Previously, I’ve been a Postdoc at IRES, Université catholique de Louvain, ECARES, Université libre de Bruxelles, and a Senior Research Assistant at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
