Demographer with a Mathematician background. Since 2009, I am the Nanoro HDSS Manager at the Clinical Research Unit of Nanoro (CRUN), IRSS-DRCO, Burkina Faso. I am also a PhD candidate in Demography at Centre for Demographic Research (UCL Belgium) with a PhD project aiming to address a critical issue in malaria control, i.e. developing news tools to accurately assess malaria attributable mortality. My research activities are focused on population and health, particularly on malaria.
I have been involved in Epidemiology and Public Health studies as well. I have a good experience on electronic data collection and analysis of longitudinal data.
I graduated from IFORD (Institut de Formation et de Recherche Démographiques) in Cameroon in 2008 with MSc. in Demography. I worked from 2008 to 2009 as research officer for the department of population and development at SP/CONAPO, Burkina Faso. In 2009, I joined CRUN to help establish the Nanoro HDSS.
My main papers have been published in International Journal of Epidemiology, Global Health Action, Malaria Journal and Plos One.
