Dr Nadia Singh joined Northumbria University as a lecturer in Economics in 2017.  She finished her PhD degree in Economics from Oxford Brookes University, UK (2017).  Her doctoral research explored the political economy of bioenergy developments in the context of developing countries. The research made an original contribution by developing a multiple stakeholder framework for sustainable bioenergy development, rooted in the concept of equitable economic development and social justice. Nadia completed her M.Phil degree from Jawaharlal Nehru University, India (2013).  Her M.Phil. research empirically estimated the inter linkages between food based nutritional interventions and indicators of childhood malnutrition.  Nadia also holds a master degree from Panjab University, India (2009) and BA (hons) degree in Economics from Delhi University, India, which she finished in first class.

Nadia has previously worked as a research fellow at a large policy research institute in India, The Institute of Development and Communication.  She was a part of a large cross-country project on the migration of health care professionals from India.  She also contributed to the Government of India’s development policy reports on gender equality, food security and renewable energy deployment.  Prior to joining Northumbria, Nadia worked as an Associate Lecturer at Oxford Brookes University, and led undergraduate seminars in a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate modules.
