Nuredin joined CSF as an Economist in 2023. His research primarily focuses on environmental valuation, and the impact of energy use (through various alternative sources such as electricity, firewood, and charcoal) on forest conservation and associated degradation in Ethiopia. While much of his current experience has been in research and lecturing, he has developed a special interest in the conservation of natural resources and its convergence with development, as well as climate change. He has worked in many different parts of Ethiopia and is excited to expand his work across Africa and the world.
Nuredin is also a researcher and Ph.D. Candidate at Addis Ababa University and the University of Gothenburg in Sweden through a collaborative program specializing in Environmental and natural resource economics. From 2014 to 2017 he served as a research and community service coordinator at Debereberhan University in his country. He has also worked at the Policy Studies Institute (PSI) / Environment and climate research center (ECRC)/EfD as a research officer since May 2022 in Ethiopia. He received his MSc. in Economics from the University of Gondar in Ethiopia, focusing on forest valuations in the country. Nuredin also holds certificates in impact evaluation from the Ethiopian Economic Association (EEA), and university leadership, governance, and management from the Maastricht School of Management in the Netherlands.
