Aurelius’ research focuses on the role of community and social capital in banking during the first globalisation. His work focuses on how personal relations affected the influence of bankers within society and how those relations informed bank operations. It combines methods from a number of different fields. Namely, financial history, network analysis and demography.
Aurelius holds a BA in History (First Class) from the University of Leeds, and an MSc in Economic History (Distinction) from the London School of Economics.
He is also involved in two further research projects. The first is with Olivier Accominotti and Stefano Ugolini, and concerns Kleinworts merchant bank. The second is with Caterina Mauri, concerning British probate data from 1858-1908.
