Wannes started his PhD at the Department of Agricultural Economics in August 2019. He holds a Master of Arts in History and Master of Science in Economics, both from Ghent University. For his research, Wannes collaborates with the NGO Rikolto, for which he volunteers at the local committee in his home town.


Wannes’ research focuses on the dynamics of collective action in regions with conflict-affected institutions. As a case, he examines Arabica coffee cooperatives in the Eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. As an assistant, he is involved in several courses regarding econometrics, farm management, and agricultural policy.
