Ejike Bob Udeogu

Senior Lecturer in Economics, University of East London

I obtained my PhD in Economics in 2016 from the University of East London. My doctoral dissertation, conducted in consultation with Professor Vassilis Fouskas, used a Political Economy framework to situate the fundamental issues undermining development in Nigeria. The uniqueness of my research stems from its successful integration of both historical materialism and empirical methodology. My main finding was recently published by the Review of African Political Economy (ROAPE) journal.

My general research interests are in the areas of Economic Development, Financialisation, Capital Accumulation and Applied Time Series Econometrics; with area expertise in Sub-Saharan Africa Economy. I currently teach Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Econometrics, Bloomberg Essentials and Corporate Finance at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Before turning to academics, I worked as a Statistical Analyst in a public planning agency in Nigeria for over two years. I was primarily responsible for analysing and disseminating economic and social statistics of the state, assisting in research studies and the publication of the state’s statistical books and journals. I hold a bachelors degree in Mathematics and Economics and a Master's degree in Financial Management.
