We have some new staff members on the hallway and we want to briefly introduce them over the next few weeks.
The four Agricultural Economists have been at the NWU for a while, but in 2016 they officially joined the School of Economics. The first one that gets an introduction is the programme leader, Dr. Flippie Cloete:
Flippie Cloete obtained his PhD in Agricultural Economics at the University of the Free State in 2010. His research focuses on agricultural development and wildlife economics. He has worked on numerous research projects for both national and international stakeholders in the agricultural sector. Dr Cloete sits on a number of steering committees and is a member of several professional organisations. He also sits on the editorial board of two international journals, and is frequently asked to speak and share his expertise at national and international forums.
He is teaching an ECON111 group this semester, along with the third year course AECM314, Farm Management. You can have a look at his full CV here.
