About me

I am currently an economist in the International Finance Corporation's Thought Leadership Unit within the Economics and Private Sector Development Vice Presidency. I joined the World Bank Group in 2015 and hold different positions in the Macro Trade and Investment GP (EFI PhD Fellow) and in the Poverty GP (consultant) where I contributed to diverse projects and reports. My work experience prior to the World Bank includes the OECD - Development Center and the Central Bank for West African States (BCEAO). I hold a PhD in Economics from Paris School of Economics, a Master’s degree in Theoretical and Empirical Economics jointly from Paris School of Economics, University Paris I Pantheon-Sorbonne and Ecole Normale Supérieure as well as a Magistère Degree in Economics and a Bachelor Degree in Econometrics both from University Paris I Pantheon-Sorbonne. I taught macroeconomics at Université Paris Nanterre La Defense. My research areas include inclusive growth, macroeconomics, public finances, inequality, development economics, applied econometrics.

I am very passionate about international development, traveling around the world, and African dances and music. Djembé and Kora are the African musical instruments I like the most.
