Alumnus Marco Haenssgen appointed Assistant Professor at Warwick University
Congratulations to former ODID DPhil Dr Marco J Haenssgen, who has been appointed Assistant Professor in Global Sustainable Development at the University of Warwick
Marco will take up his post, a permanent position shared between the School of Cross-Faculty Studies and the Department of Politics and International Studies, in January 2019.
Marco completed his DPhil in December 2015. His research at ODID explored the consequences of mobile phone diffusion on rural healthcare access in India and China. This DPhil research formed the basis for subsequent health-related social research projects in Southeast Asia with Oxford’s Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health, including qualitative and quantitative health behaviour research in Myanmar, Thailand, and Lao PDR.
The interdisciplinary environment at Warwick promises new collaborations and will enable Marco to intensify his development studies research on human behaviour and social innovation in tropical medicine.
