Dr Shaikh Eskander

About

I am an environmental and development economist. I apply applied econometric and microeconomic methods to investigate issues on climate change, sustainable development, gender and entrepreneurship, and energy efficiency. My recent research has been published by Nature Climate Change, NBERWorld Development, and Ecological Economics, among others. 

I supervise PhD theses on environmental and development economics (completed: 1, on-going: 2). I currently serve as the postgraduate research coordinator of economics. Please get in touch at Shaikh.Eskander@Kingston.ac.uk if you have a question about Economics PhD program at Kingston.

My external research affiliations include visiting fellow with Grantham Research Institute at LSE, research associate with CAMA at Australian National University, non-resident fellow with CDES at Monash University, and courtesy research assistant professor at Florida Int'l University. In the past, I worked at the London School of Economics and the University of Dhaka. I also consulted for many international organizations including the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank.
