Eberechukwu Johnpaul Ihemezie
I am a Commonwealth PhD Scholar at the Sustainability Research Institute (SRI), School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds. I am working with Dr. Martin Dallimer and Prof. Lindsay Stringer, and my research focuses on understanding the forest conservation–human values nexus in Sub-Saharan Africa. I belong to the Environment and Development Research Group.
Prior to joining the University of Leeds as a postgraduate researcher, I worked as Lecturer at the Department of Agricultural Economics, University of Nigeria, Nsukka. I did my Masters in Environment and Development at the University of Leeds (2015-2016) and Bachelor of Agriculture in Agricultural Economics from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (2007- 2012).
My research employs a mixed methods approach where context specific qualitative method is combined with quantitative analysis to explore how non-material human values are influencing behaviours towards conservation projects, and how conservation projects have influenced human values.
