PhD Recognition for SEED colleague

(9 February 2018)

Many congratulations to Felipe Irarrazaval, School of Environment, Education and Development (SEED) who has been awarded the Manuel Chiriboga Award for his PhD project on ‘Global production networks and the extractive sector: natural gas revenues and regional economic change in the Andes’.

The highly competitive award, by the Latin American Centre for Research on Rural Development, is a fantastic recognition of his research and includes a US$ 3,500 bursary as well as opportunities for future publication. Felipe is currently doing field work in Bolivia and Peru and will return to Manchester later in the year, continuing to work with Drs Martin Hess and Jamie Doucette, SEED, towards his final thesis.
