Mr Scott Mahadeo
I am a Lecturer in Macroeconomics, within the Economics and Finance Subject Group, at Portsmouth Business School. I have over seven years’ experience lecturing and tutoring economics and related modules across the undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum. My research interests are in the areas of applied econometrics, energy and natural resource economics, and financial stability analysis.
Before coming to the University of Portsmouth, I held academic positions at the University of Keele and the University of the West Indies. I also had a stint in banking supervision at the Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago. I obtained a BSc in Economics and an MPhil in Agricultural Economics from the University of the West Indies, an MSc in Economics and Econometrics from the University of Nottingham, and a PG Certificate in Higher Education Teaching from the University of Keele. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a member of the Royal Economic Society.
I currently teach and coordinate the following modules:
- U30870 Advanced topics in economics (level 6 - UG)
- U25292 Economics (level 7 - PG)
- U20444 International economics (level 5 - UG)
- U24398 International economics [Exchange] (level 5 - UG)
I am also a supervisor to students reading U30871 Economics research project (level 6 - UG).
I am particularly interested in the effects commodity market conditions have on financial and macroeconomic stability, especially for resource-rich countries. My PhD research at the University of Keele focuses on contagion analysis.
