Before joining CCRED, I was a Research Officer at the Technology and Management Centre for Development (TMCD), Oxford Department of International Development (ODID), University of Oxford. I was also a Global Excellence and Stature (GES) Fellow, and Open AIR’s Queen Elizabeth’s Scholar (QES) at the South African Research Chair in Industrial Development Unit, University of Johannesburg, South Africa. I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics of Innovation, Policy Studies of Technical Change and Governance in May 2018, from the United Nations University (UNU-MERIT)/Maastricht University, The Netherlands. I also hold a collaborative Master of Philosophy (M Phil.) in Economics from the University of Cape Coast (Ghana) and the African Economic Research Consortium’s Joint Facility for Electives: Collaborative Masters Programme (CMAP) in Economics.
