When Mathematics, Economics and Data Science meet together, there’s no business, R&D or ML problem that can’t be solved.

Educator, Scholar, Advocate. A certified teacher passionate about furthering students’ access to education, Bertrand combines strong academics with extensive intercultural experience. In 2013 he graduated from the Higher Teachers Training College of Yaounde in Cameroon and earned a Secondary and High School Teacher’s Certificate. He has served as Mathematics’ teacher in Cameroon in different regions and noticed the disparities in education attainment level and their impact on regional growth. He took the opportunity to hone his skills in Impact Evaluation methods and Statistics at the African School of Economics through a master’s program while serving as a research assistant in Benin. He, therefore, gained valuable skills in addressing issues in education and in Social Science at large. His ability to combine tools from Data Science and Economics to make data-driven decisions gives him the opportunity to participate to addressing some of the most pressing problems face by the world poor.

I am a mixed methods researcher interested in multidimensional poverty measurement, particularly in higher education. I am also interested in social statistics, human development, quantitative methods and mathematical modelling. I am based at the University of the Free State in South Africa and and I hold a PhD in Development Studies as well as graduate and undergraduate degrees in Mathematical Statistics and Actuarial Science.

Restructuring History is the most futuristic approach towards Development” is the outlook and motivation with which I explore the arena of Area Studies to arrive at Alternative Development strategies by deriving Alternatives to Development in its current form and practice.

I am a PhD student in the Department of Government at the University of Essex. I am also a trained Economist from Externado de Colombia University and have a MSc. in International Comparative Studies from the University of Southampton (UK).
My dissertation focuses on local development in Colombian municipalities, specifically the impact of executive-legislative relations on public spending efficiency and tax compliance. I am co-supervised byProf. Royce Carroll and Prof. Shane Martin. In this research project, I am a scholarship holder of Fundación Ceiba and Alcaldía Mayor de Bogotá since 2016.

I am a political scientist by training and an interdisciplinary scholar at the core.
Interdisciplinary trajectories allow me to see the deficiencies of hyper disciplinary commitments and complementary possibilities when identity politics (the idea that who are matters as a foundation of institutions) meets conventional political/institutional analyses (the idea that institutions/ organizations matter before or beyond identity). My conversation partners range from Anthropologists to sociologist, to theologians and policy analysts, to reference a few. See my interests keywords and let’s get in touch at the intersection of our encounter.

I am a Lecturer in International Development and Economics at the University of Westminster. Before this, I held a post-doctoral research position at the University of Oxford’s Department for International Development, where I was involved in a EU FP7-funded project seeking to investigate the impact of Foreign Direct Investment on local development in Ghana. I have also worked as a research consultant for a number of organisations, including Oxford Policy Management, UNU-WIDER, the World Food Programme, and UNDP.

My research is divided into three strands: one examines the impact of FDI in low-income countries, with a specific field focus on Ghana; another one is broadly concerned with social policy in low-income countries; with a more recent focus on health policy and health systems reform in Sub-Saharan Africa; finally, the last strand develops the work on instability and development, which Istarted as part of my doctoral research a few years ago.

I study how social identity affects electoral accountability, the functioning of government, and political behaviour. My work lies at the intersection of Political Economy, Political Behaviour, Experimental Methods, and Political Psychology. In my research I build on strategic and behavioural theories of principal-agent relationships and voting. I implement experiments to analyse how individuals evaluate their politicians’ performance, when they discriminate in favour of their social group, how they make redistributive allocation decisions, or how they coordinate their choices with their peers.
