I have a Master degree in Development Economics from the Centre for Studies and Research in Development Economics (CERDI, France). Then, I have spent two years working on the extension of health insurance to vulnerable population in Senegal in collaboration with the International Labour Organization. Between 2009 and 2012, I was a research student at the department of economics of the University of Otago (New Zealand).
