Sustainable livelihood diversification research: The research area of sustainable livelihood diversification is of particular interest to me as I focus on assessing the livelihood diversification of residents in Goderich. Through my participation in the UN Encyclopedia SDG book project, I have contributed to sustainable development discussions. In the relevant book chapters, I have discussed various topical concepts such as collective bargaining, informal employment, nurturing career development, the importance of public service in achieving the SDGs, market failure, import substitution industrialization, the impact of COVID-19 on globalization, economics of innovation and technological transformation, and critical discourses on the sustainable livelihood framework.
Development of structural macroeconomic models: I am committed to ensuring the achievement of the Bank of Sierra Leone's (BSL) mandate of price and financial stability objectives, which aligns with the overarching focus of the ECOWAS single-currency ambition. To achieve this, I have developed a Forecasting and Policy Analysis System (FPAS) and Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models.
Teaching and external review role: With nearly three decades of professional experience, I am actively engaged in providing external reviews for internationally referred journals. Some of the journals I have reviewed for include the African Development Review, Journal of Mixed Methods Research, Education and Information Technologies Journal, and Journal of Economic Management. I also play an active role in teaching.
Continuous engagement in multi-disciplinary academic scholarship: My academic interests lie in critical Heterodox / Pluralist discourses on sustainable development in Africa and Sierra Leone, in particular. I am continuously engaged in multi-disciplinary academic scholarships aimed at advancing these discourses.
