Yuzuru Kumon

I'm a postdoctoral researcher at Bocconi University and I am currently on the job market. My main research interests are economic history, labor economics and development economics.

My research attempts to answer major puzzles in long-run world history. I have won the Alexander Gerschenkron Prize for best dissertation in non US or Canadian economic history from the Economic History Association for my research.

I grew up in the suburbs of London, before returning to Japan for college, and studying for my Ph.D. in Davis, California. I am currently living in Milan, Italy.
