I am a scholar of U.S. and global history, with a particular focus on U.S. foreign relations, international political economy, development, and global environmental history. I am the author of Of Limits and Growth: The Rise of Global Sustainable Development in the Twentieth Century (Cambridge University Press, 2015) and co-editor, with Erez Manela, of The Development Century: A Global History (Cambridge University Press, 2018). I have also published numerous articles, book chapters, and review essays.
I am currently at work on a new book. It explores various critiques of economic growth since the 1960s by revealing how reformers have challenged and sought to rethink the ways in which the concept of “growth” has been defined, assessed, and measured. Tentatively titled Mis-measuring the Development Century, the book is under contract with the University of Chicago Press.”
