Research interests

The focus of Guy’s research is understanding the influence of industrialisation on British society. His past work has concentrated on earning and employment in the coal industry, using north-east England and south Wales as case studies.

At the Turing, Guy is working to apply input-output modelling to Britain in the long nineteenth century in order to understand trade flows between urban centres. In parallel, he is also utilising historical census data to assess the impact of changes in occupational structure on the lives of everyday individuals.
