I am a distinguished young female academic with a passion for quantitative analysis of socio-economic issues. I am energetic, persistent, self-motivated, dynamic and hard working. I have more than six years’ experience in the teaching of several modules at both undergraduate and postgraduate level including Introductory macro- and microeconomics, Monetary Economics at third-year level and Monetary and Fiscal Policy at honours level. I am also involved in research supervision at honours, masters and PhD level; having graduated several masters’ students. I have had the opportunity to work on several industry research projects, while having published numerous research articles in peer-reviewed national and international journals, and attended a number of academic/research conferences nationally and internationally. In addition, I am also involved in the review of articles from several journals. My expertise is teaching and socio-economic research. My research focus is strongly grounded in the broad field of economic development, with special interest in labour market research, particularly understanding youth and graduate labour market dynamics. In addition, I am intrigued by macroeconomic policy formulation and poverty-related studies.
