Oliver Morrissey

Professor of Development Economics

"Theory can help focus the mind, but to get a true understanding of how things work you need data. The better the data - and the better your analysis of it - the richer the stories you can explore.

My research is focused on the process of economic development, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, and I've been to every country my studies have covered. I attach a lot of importance to that - and to the fact that I work with students from those countries. It's all absolutely crucial to enhancing our grasp of how these nations operate and why they don’t necessarily match people’s perceptions."
