Tribute to the Late Michael Anyadike-Danes, PhD

For Release Upon Receipt - Thursday, November 29, 2018

116860-M Dane-11-29-2018.jpgIt is with deep regret that The University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus has learnt of the passing of former Professor of Economics, Michael Anyadike-Danes, who died at his home in Barbados on October 21st, 2018.

Born in Sydney Australia, Michael graduated with first class honours in Economics from the University of Sydney in 1975. He later pursued a Masters of Economics degree in 1977 and a doctorate at Queen Mary College, University of London, in 1979.

After completing his PhD, Michael worked with the Policy Group in the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Cambridge and then at the Observatoire Français des Conjunctures Economiques, a Paris-based economic policy research institute.

Michael was Professor of Quantitative Economics at the Cave Hill Campus from 1989 until 1997, where his research interests focused on the theory and practice of macroeconomics and the formation and growth of small business enterprises. Upon leaving Cave Hill, he became Director of the Northern Ireland Economic Research Centre. In 2004, Michael assumed the post of Head of Research at the Economic Research Institute of Northern Ireland, before eventually moving onto the Aston Business School as a Senior Research Fellow in the Economics and Strategy Group in 2011.

An Academician at the Academy of Social Sciences and a member of the Royal Statistical Society, he also served as an Editor for the Cambridge Journal of Economics. Michael’s work on the statistical analysis of economic problems concerning policymakers is extensively published.

Michael is survived by his wife Monye and their three children: Chima, Kechi and Ngozi.
