Frank Ellis

House: Scott
Year: 1961-1965

Memories of School:
Enjoyed - lousy at sports, though, never could do those athletics standards and used to be called "the galloping tapeworm" at one point.

Since leaving School:
Left Kenya early 1966, various qualifications ensued at Reading, LSE and Sussex Universities. Since 1973, I have been an academic specialising in rural poverty reduction and agricultural policy in low income countries. There was a long interval before I returned to Kenya (in 1997), and interestingly I have been working in that region (Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya) a lot over the past three years.

Currently I am Professor in the School of Development Studies at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, and I am also Director of the Overseas Development Group that is our unit that does a lot of consultancy work for the UK Department for International Development and other aid organisations.
