Stuart graduated as a materials engineer and initially worked for Anglo-American in South Africa, before later completing a MBA and pursuing a banking career in New York. Increasingly interested in the economics of southern Africa, Stuart enrolled on the Cambridge MPhil as a means to transition into a PhD in African economic history. His present research is titled ‘A history of policy signals and market responses in Zambia's relationship with foreign capital'. The study investigates responses by investors to institutional change brought about by abrupt shifts in Zambian government policy over the last 50 years, and the economic constraints these responses have placed on the Zambian economy.
