About Prof Beatrice Simo-Kengne

I am an associate professor and senior researcher for the Public and Environmental Economics Research Centre (PEERC) in the department of Economics and Econometrics at the University of Johannesburg and hold Bcom, Mcom and PhD degrees in economics, from the University of Douala (Cameroon) and the University of Pretoria (South Africa). I have taught macroeconomics, panel econometrics, time series econometrics, and mathematics for economists and has supervised many Mcom and PhD students as well as having facilitated a number of Econometrics workshop trainings.

My research profile outlines the implementation of a wide range of macro-econometric models to various economic issues including-but not limited to- performance evaluation, energy, housing, stock, import/export and inflation.

I live by Philippians 4:13: “I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me”
