I am a PhD Candidate in the Economics and Public Policy program jointly organized by the Department of Economics and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy  at Tufts University. My research interests are in the field of development economics, with a focus on structural transformation, firms and misallocation. I also study how access to cities, through social networks and markets, affects individuals’ economic behaviors and beliefs.

I hold a BA in economics from Université Protestante au Congo, a diploma in public administration from Ecole Nationale d’Administration and a MA in policy economics from Williams College. I previously worked on issues of agricultural and rural development for the Office of the Prime Minister in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
