Biography

I joined Keele Business School as a Lecturer in Economics and Econometrics in 2021. Prior to that I was a Lecturer at the University of Bristol and Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of Nottingham. I studied for my Master's and PhD at the University of Nottingham. My PhD thesis was entitled "Essays in Poverty and Household Analysis in Africa" and was completed in 2017. My research interests broadly lie within the area of Development Economics with a particular focus on Applied Microeconometic analysis of household welfare and livelihoods using nationally representative surveys.

Research and scholarship

I have published work on assessing the reliability of Pseudo-panel estimation techniques and smallholder agriculture in Tanzania. My current research is on analysing the effect of household income diversification on welfare in Uganda and whether growth has translated to poverty reduction in Sub-Saharan African. I'm interested in supervising PhDs in the areas of Development Economics and Applied Microeconometrics.
