About Dr Milton Yago
Milton Yago graduated with a PhD in Economics from the University of Nottingham, School of Economics. His thesis was based on the investigation of the determinants of growth and investment in developing countries with specific emphasis on sub-Saharan African countries.

Milton joined the Business school in September 2006 from The University of Hull Centre for Economic Policy where he worked as a Research Associate on an EPSRC Supergen project investigating the economic impact of low carbon electricity policy on the UK economy. He had previously worked in a similar position at the University of East Anglia developing a macroeconomic model for investigating the impact of antimicrobial resistance on the macroeconomy.
Milton has been a referee for a number of academic journals which include Journal of Health Economics, Journal of Health, Value in Health, Social Science & Medicine, World Economy, Review of International Economics, Journal of Development Studies, International Journal of Economic Research and Global Environmental Change.
