Chisom Ubabukoh

Chisom Ubabukoh is a PhD/MRes Economics student, funded by the Economics Discipline Area of the School of Social Sciences. 

He obtained an MSc in Development Economics and Policy with Distinction in 2012 from The University of Manchester. His dissertation was on estimating the determinants of Agricultural Productivity in Developing countries and a revision of the World Banks' "Three Worlds" division of developing countries (based on their surplus labour), supervised by Dr Adam Ozanne. 

His undergraduate degree was in Agricultural Economics, after which he worked for a year, teaching Economics and Mathematics to secondary school students in a very remote village in Nigeria. It was this experience that piqued his interest in development issues and poverty analysis.
