Professor Sugata Ghosh


I did my UG and PG studies in India. I then came to the UK in 1989, where I first did an MPhil in Economics (1989-’90), and then completed my PhD in 1994 from the University of Cambridge. I was Lecturer/Senior Lecturer at Cardiff University from 1 July 1996 till 31 December 2004. After this, I joined Brunel University with a Readership (from 1 January 2005). I was appointed Professor in Economics at Brunel on 1 July 2011.
