Emmanuel Quarshie is a PhD candidate at the Wits Business School, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa. He holds a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Bachelor of Arts (BA) degrees in Economics from the University of Ghana.

His PhD thesis is on regulated cannabis legalisation and it has been awarded a research grant by the Centre for African Philanthropy and Social Investment (CAPSI), Wits Business School, and the CHEEBA Africa competition. He is a United Nations University WIDER (UNU-WIDER) co- research grant Fellow.

He is the 2019 best PhD oral presenter at the School of Economics and Business Sciences (SEBS) international annual symposium. A consultant for the UN Migration Agency (IOM) on migration data and research at the IOM Southern Africa regional office based in Pretoria, South Africa.

His fields of interest are in the economics of regulated cannabis legalization, economics of migration, labour migration modelling, migration governance and policy. Emmanuel worked on several global projects as a data expert, researcher, project administrator, communications and research uptake expert. His strength lies in scientific conceptualization and operationalization of theoretically rigorous, methodologically robust policy-relevant and timely research.

His future work seeks to address the cracks in policy designs that relegate indigenous intelligence to the background. He believes that original knowledge holds the keys to human progress. Within the field of migration, he is on the path of aligning migration theories to fit perfectly in policy design in order to achieve a coherent, harmonized and workable migration governance for a universal win for the African continent. He hopes to remain relevant in the mastery of research conceptualization and operationalization.
