Welcome to my website!

I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at Georgia State University and Research Assistant with the International Center for Public Policy (ICePP).

Before the current position, I served several years as Research Assistant at the Africa Rice Center, a pan-African Center of Excellence committed to poverty reduction and food and nutrition security through cutting-edge agricultural research. Previously, I earned a Master's degree in Statistics and Economics from the National Advanced School of Statistics and Applied Economics (ENSEA) of Abidjan (Cote d'Ivoire).

My research utilizes causal econometric methods to study issues related to public finance, education, labor, and development economics. Part of my current research investigates the impact of pro-poor education policies on educational and child labor outcomes. The other part evaluates the effect of plastic money use on Value-Added Tax compliance.
