ANADUAKA Uchechi Shirley (PhD, 2019)
The Economics program at LingnanU provided me with the opportunity to develop a clearer view of my research interests in Micro-Development economics. The facilities provided are well equipped with the latest statistical software to ensure the students have all the resources they need for their research. The departmental and visiting professors were very helpful when I encountered some problems with my research. Interacting with them during personal meetings and departmental seminars made my research experience more meaningful. The department also supported me to attend important training workshops. For example, the 3-day Mastering Metrics workshop with Professor Joshua Angrist at the University of Tokyo in Japan and the 5-day Structural Equation Modelling workshop with Dr. Paul Allison at Chicago Booth School of Business in USA. Finally, thanks to Professor Ping Lin and Professor Ho Lun Alex Wong, I am very excited about my future in academia as a researcher and a teacher. I am very thankful for the fruitful research years as a Lingnanian and looking forward to a greater future as a passionate scholar.
