I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at the University of Montreal. Prior to starting graduate school, I was a senior economist at the Ministry of Finance in Cameroon.
I graduated in June 2012 from the Sub-Regional Institut of Statistics and Applied Economics, with a Master in Statistics and applied economics.
At the University of Montreal, I am an affiliate of the Centre Interuniversitaire de Recherche en Economie Quantitative (CIREQ).
