Dr Shaikh Eskander

Lecturer in Economics


I am an applied microeconomist with primary research focus in environmental, natural resource and development economics. I apply econometrics and applied microeconomic theory to problems in agriculture, sustainable development, transboundary negotiations, climate change, private sector & household adaptation and marine resources. 

I have a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Wyoming, an MA in Economics from Carleton University, and BSS (Honors) and MSS in Economics from the University of Dhaka.​  ​
