My research interests are predominantly in international political economy, economic history and economic development. I have a number of theoretical, as well as empirical papers in the publication pipeline. My Ph.D. project titled “Essays on the Political Economy of 20th Century Colonization & Decolonization in Africa”, sought an alternative explanation, besides the conventional explanations, for the differential paths of development across former sub-Saharan African colonies. Specifically, my research findings suggest that the choices made by European colonizers during the colonization of Africa, notably, in the domain of education, are a crucial determinant of income levels today.
