I have been teaching in the Department of Accounting at UDSM for the past 10 years, and I am presently a PhD student in the Department of Economics at the same University. I am presently working on a research project titled “Political Settlements and Revenue Bargains in Africa”, a DANIDA project in which the AU’s Political Science department is working together with Makerere University in Uganda and REPOA [a policy research institution] in Tanzania. The working title for my PhD thesis is “Nature and Implications of Revenue Bargains in Tanzania”.
Here at AU, I’m currently following the Social Research Crafting Course and of course working on my PhD proposal. I will be here for 3 months.
I’m already enjoying the friendly working atmosphere here!
