Yuzuru Kumon

I'm a research fellow at the Institute of Advanced Study, Toulouse. 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, studying for my Ph.D. in Davis, California, and then researching as a post-doc in Milan, Italy. I am currently living in Toulouse, France.
