I am currently the Head of the Economics Department, working predominantly in the area of quantitative methods. Prior to joining The UWI, I worked as a Senior Economist and was the Head of the Financial Unit in the Research and Economic Analysis Department of the Central Bank of Barbados. I have several research interests. My early research revolved around econometric models to study tourism, migrant remittances and macroeconomic policy in SIDS– a reflection of my tenure at the Central Bank of Barbados. While issues related to tourism, migration and macroeconomic policy remain areas of interest, my current research focuses on using econometrics to understand sexual prejudice and gender equality.
