82 | Vulnerable Michael Keenan | The East African-Effect and Phd Work

Podcast cover
Read more
Michael Keenan is PhD Candidate at Wageningen University and Research. His dissertation focuses on understanding how risk and market access affect smallholder farmers’ marketing and investment decisions, agricultural households’ livelihoods, and internal conflict within agricultural-based economies. To understand these relationships, His research combines behavioral, theoretical, and empirical analysis at the intra-household level, household-level, and mesoeconomic level. 

He is passionate about applying quantitative methods and big data to a range of economic development issues. His research is now expanding into understanding gender gaps in smallholder agriculture, urban migration patterns in Sub-Saharan Africa, and the effects of digital innovations on rural areas' food systems.

He has been based in Nairobi, Kenya for the past three years and has experience conducting research in Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, and Tanzania. I enjoy travelling, reading, and spending time with friends and family.

In this episode, He talks about pursuing a career in East Africa and his PhD Work
