PhD Researcher – An investigation into the implications of expanding artisanal and small-scale gold mining on agriculture and livelihoods in Ghana.

Enoch is a Global Development PhD Researcher in the Department of Politics and International Relations and Department of Environment & Geography, University of York, since 2020. His research is investigating the implications of expanding artisanal and small-scale gold mining on agriculture and livelihoods in non-traditional mining areas in Ghana, under the supervision of Prof. Lindsay Stringer and Prof. Henrice Altink. He belongs to the Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre (IGDC) and Creating sustainable and equitable food, energy and water systems research group.

Enoch’s research approach is interdisciplinary, drawing on theories and methods from the natural and social sciences to examine the human-environment relationships and how they shape development outcomes. He has gathered experience across multiple sectors including roles as a financial professional in the UK for over a decade, worked as a researcher in academia with previous engagements in the areas of soil contamination, environmental impact assessments and forest management, and prior to these worked with NGO in Ghana on sustainable land use, conservation agriculture and agroforestry. He holds MSc in Sustainable Environmental Management, University of Greenwich, and a BSc in Natural Resources Management, KNUST, Ghana.

His research interests are centred around the following themes:

  • Socio-economic and environmental dimensions of artisanal and small-scale mining in Sub-Saharan Africa
  • Natural resource governance and the extractive industries
  • Agriculture and Land Use Management
  • Livelihoods and development 
  • Environmental governance
