Ifedotun Victor Aina
I am a Senior Researcher and Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Water and Production Economics research unit at the University of Cape Town. My recent experience includes a visiting scholar position at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Austria. In addition, I am a member of the River Basin Modelling Group at the School of Public Policy, University of California, Riverside.
I have developed an active research portfolio at the intersection of water and environmental economics, agricultural economics, and behavioral economics. I also have research interests in various sub-fields of development economics, particularly as they relate to environmental and resource economics. I am passionate about employing state-of-the-art econometric techniques and applied economic theory to address urgent questions in water governance and development policy.
Prior to my Ph.D., I graduated with an MSc in Agricultural Economics with distinction from the University of Ilorin, and was awarded an ARISE fellowship through the Intra-Africa academic mobility scheme of the European Union.
Research interests: Environmental economics, Climate change adaptation and mitigation, water policy, development economics, discrete choice modelling and hydro-economic modelling.
