Currently Director of the University of Guyana GREEN Institute and Senior Lecturer, Dept. of Economics, University of Guyana, I have worked in academia, the public sector (the Guyana Forestry Commission, Bank of Guyana, and Privatisation Unit) and the private sector (with an environmental and economics consulting company in the US). At the University of Guyana, my teaching and research have been in the general areas of applied microeconomics and econometrics, with a particular interest in environmental and natural resource economics and management, institutional and behavioural economics; and econometrics. Most recently I have organised an annual green economy workshop series, and was responsible for the establishment of a green institute at the University of Guyana. I have a PhD in Economics from the University of Kent (UK), my Dissertation having been titled To Trust or Not to Trust Others: Norms, Interactions and Institutions.
Outside of my professional activities, I am an active member of Guyana’s civil society and am also the founding president of the Epilepsy Foundation of Guyana.
