Dacil Juif obtained my PhD in Economic History at Eberhard-Karls University of Tübingen in 2014. Her thesis dealt with the determinants of long-run human capital formation in the Iberian world. From 2014 to 2017 she was a post-doc researcher within the VIDI-Project: 'Is Poverty Destiny? Exploring Long Term Changes in African Living Standards in Global Perspective', at Wageningen University. Since 2017 she is Assistant Professor (profesora visitante) at Carlos III University of Madrid. Her research focusses on the Economic History of Southern and Central Africa, with a special focus on the welfare of mining workers and on labour migration. Her research interests include the effect of mining activities on the wellbeing of the population, the development of tax capacity in former colonies, and long-run human capital formation.
