The Deputy Principal: Professor Winston R. Moore


Professor Winston R. Moore (PhD, MSc, BSc Economics), Deputy Principal of the UWI Cave Hill Campus, is an economist recognised both regionally and internationally for undertaking impactful research, building relationships between academy and the private sector as well as being a very active public commentator on issues related to national development.

Professor Moore earned his Bachelor of Science in Economics from The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus in 1999, a Master of Science in Economics from the University of Warwick, UK, in 2002, and a Doctor of Philosophy in Economics from the University of Surrey, UK, in 2009.  Prior to joining the team at the University of the West Indies, he was a Senior Economist at the Central Bank of Barbados. 

He was the Lead Author for Barbados’ Green Economy Scoping Study (GESS), sponsored by the United Nation’s Environment Programme and conducted by the Campus on the behalf of the Government of Barbados.  The main goal of the Study was to identify opportunities for greening the economy, with a particular emphasis on five key industries (Tourism, Agriculture, Fisheries, Transportation and Housing) and four cross cutting issues (water, waste, energy and land).  The GESS Report has significantly solidified Barbados’ reputation as a leader in the area and has provided a roadmap to guide future policy formulation locally.  Professor Moore has been invited to deliver lectures on the issues surrounding development in small island states and has supported the work of international donors through his research.

Over his career he has published over 90 peer reviewed articles, books and book chapters.  When his non-refereed academic output is included, this number rises to over 100 papers, books and working papers.   In addition to the quantum of his research, the quality of this research is reflected by the number of citations his research has received. His research has received more than 1000 citations, with over 700 of these occurring since 2014.

In light of the work listed above, in addition to many others, Professor Moore has been the recipient of many significant awards.  In 2006 he was identified as the Most Outstanding Young Economist by the Barbados Economics Society while in 2008 he was highlighted as one of the “60 under 60”, one of the 60 Academics at the University of the West Indies that are “helping to support the competitiveness of our society as well as the humanitarian dimension, to ensure that the care of the most vulnerable in our society and in the world is not ignored by the rich and powerful”.  In 2012, Professor Moore received the Principal’s Award for Academic Excellence in the area of research while in 2015 he received an award as part of The UWI Cave Hill Campus Research Day activities for attracting significant funding.  In 2016, he was promoted to the rank of Professor based on his work, the impact of his research on the discipline of economics, service to the University as well as the Community and record of distinguished teaching.

Since joining The University of the West Indies in 2006, Professor Moore has taken on a number of leadership roles within the University.  Prior to assuming the role of Deputy Principal, he was Director of the School for Graduate Studies and Research.  He has also served as the Head of the Department of Economics.  During his term in office as Head of the Department of Economics (2015-2018) he was able to implement many of the areas of follow-up as outlined in the 2015 Quality Assurance review.  At the undergraduate level, new applied modules in industrial organisation and health economics were introduced.  To foster greater feedback and a better coordination of activities, the Department also re-introduced the system of class representatives as well as a staggered examination week.  To enhance the quality of graduate and undergraduate students’ opportunities to work in research institutions throughout the region in paid internships are provided through our collaborations with the Inter-American Development Bank, the Central Bank of Barbados and the Caribbean Regional Technical Assistance Centre.

Professor Moore has been the President of the Barbados Economics Society, a member of the Editorial Committee of the Central Bank of Barbados, the Cabinet Sub-Committee on the Economy, Oversight Committee on State-Owned Enterprises and the Electric Light and Power Act Advisory Committee.
