Personal profile


My primary research interests are in economic development, political economy of development and African economic history. My research centers on understanding the historical roots of inequality by investigating long-term trends and drivers of national and regional income inequality for colonial and post-colonial Ghana. I focus on the income distribution effects of cash cropping, regional and gender disparities in education, differential access to land and credit, and fiscal policies.  



I teach on the following courses at the graduate level: MIDA11: International Development Perspectives, EKHM73: Research Design, EKHM61: Institutions, Economic Growth and Equity and EKHM84: Development of Emerging Economies. At the undergraduate level, I teach on these courses: UTVC22: Development Studies- Development Policy in Practice and UTVC23: Development Studies-Development Theories.
