Ifedotun Victor Aina


I am a researcher specializing in Water and Agricultural Economics in arid and semi-arid regions. My recent experience includes a visiting scholar position at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Austria.

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.
