About Omoniyi (Niyi)

I am a Lecturer in Economics at the Waikato Management School. I currently teach economics in the Master of Business and Management (MBM) and Master of Professional Accounting programme. I also work as a consultant for the World Bank Poverty and Equity Global practice in Europe and Central Asia.

I completed my PhD as a joint student of the National Institute of Demographic and Economic Analysis (NIDEA) and the Economics department of the University of Waikato. My research examined the role of ageing, immigration and assortative matching on the distribution of income in New Zealand. Prior to starting at Waikato, I was a Risk Consultant in the Advisory practice of Ernst & Young in Wellington, New Zealand.
