About me

Dr Schneider is currently conducting research on three broad topics in the history of health and historical economic demography:

  • Assessing factors influencing children's health and growth in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries
  • Measuring how early life health has changed over time and the influence of early life exposure to disease on later health outcomes
  • Reconstructing child stunting rates (a measure of malnutrition) back to the nineteenth century around the world

These projects span chronological and geographical boundaries from early modern England to twentieth-century Japan.
