Investigating the use of ICT in the decision making process of tertiary students about their future is my goal.
Populations are nowadays exposed to various sources of Informations through ICT. My second interest is to understand the role play by ICT in people behavior/action in time of crisis.

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