Hamidou Jawara

I have recently completed my PhD degree in Economics from the University of Kiel in Germany. I am currently a lecturer in economics at the University of The Gambia where I am teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in course in economics such as introduction to econometrics, and advanced microeconomics. Through my doctoral program, I have developed strong passion for research in development economics and applied microeconomics. Consequently, most of my research work now focuses on microcredit schemes and financial inclusion in developing countries as well as on personality traits and the role of social networks in addressing market failures in developing countries. Also, I am currently a candidate fellow under the EIB-GDN fellowship.
