I am an infrastructure investment professional whose research interest lies in the development impact of infrastructure.

My PhD research, studentship, fees and residential bursaries are funded respectively by the International Growth Centre, UCL and Goodenough College. 

Current roles: 

Prior to my PhD, I helped the Rwandan government execute award-winning and innovative infrastructure projects as its PPP Transactions Advisor from 2012-2016, and developed investment presentation and appraisal tools and contributed to Rwanda’s laws on PPPs and investment promotion as a Special Policy Advisor to Rwanda’s Treasury to the Secretary.  

Before that, I worked in African private equity in London. I have a Master of International Business degree from The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University, where I was a Schmidheiny Global Business Scholar, with an exchange at HEC Paris, and a BA in Economics from UC Berkeley.
