Faten Saliba


In 2011, I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Economics track finance (2:1) from the Lebanese American University and then completed my MSc in Economics (merit) at The University of Manchester in 2011-2012. After my masters, I joined the Research Department of the International Labour Organisation in Geneva first as an intern and then as short-term staff and later as a consultant for ILO Algeria and Ghana. During my time in Geneva, my interest in pursuing a PhD in Economics grew stronger. I then decided to join The University of Manchester as a PhD student focusing on policy evaluation related to environmental issues and wider development and social issues.

Research interests

I am a member of the Environmental and Resource Economics Research Area Group. In addition to the research I mentioned before, I am also interested in labour market trends and issues.
