Montserrat Lopez Jerez
Montserrat López Jerez holds a Ph.D. in Economic History (2014, Lund University) and is currently a researcher at both the Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies and the Department of Economic History. Montserrat has been associated to the Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies since 2005; first as a Master student and later on, as a teacher. She also holds a position as Programme Coordinator of the Bachelor’s in Development Studies (BIDS). Her main area of research is economic development, long-term impact of colonialism, and agricultural transformation in Vietnam.
From 2002 to 2005, Montserrat worked at the Spanish Embassy in Vietnam (in HCMC) and in Vientiane, Laos, in diverse commercial and trade matters.
I am currently working for the project “Tracing the Institutional Roots of Economic Development? The Impact of Colonial Extraction” led by Prof Christer Gunnarsson and funded by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) 2011-2137. I have been part of a Lund-based multidisciplinary group on Rural Development and I am currently involved in two international networks: one on colonial impact and the other on South-East Asian economic history. My research interests are broadly in economic development, and more specifically in colonialism, agricultural transformation, the effects of factor endowments in economic and institutional change, and related methodological discussions on path dependence and institutional transformation.
