About Omoniyi (Niyi)
I am a Senior Lecturer in Economics at the Waikato Management School. I currently teach the first year Business Economics and the New Zealand Economy paper, as well as in the Master of Professional Accounting programme. I am a 2022 African Fellow in the World Bank Group Africa fellowship programme and a consultant for the World Bank Data Development Group.
I am passionate about improving welfare and living standards around the
world and my research interests span the areas of poverty, inequality, and the distributional consequences of changes in demographic trends. Prior to starting at Waikato, I was a Risk Consultant in the Advisory practice of Ernst & Young in Wellington, New Zealand.
