Who am I?
Previously project manager and specialist in monitoring and evaluation of appropriate technologies for urban and rural populations in Latin America, Asia and Africa, I have worked for the last ten years on energy, water and sanitation, disaster risk management issues, with a particular interest on durability, sustainability and post-project evaluations.
The question that has driven me for several years is the following: what happens to development projects after the withdrawal of external support?
That is why at the end of 2020, I started a PhD to understand the sustainability of solar mini-grids in Africa and Latin America. I am studying how their conditions of governance, maintenance and their business models evolve in time. My thesis is being carried out at the University of Grenoble, under the supervision of Pascale Trompette and Sandrine Mathy (PACTE and GAEL lab), and in collaboration with Schneider Electric (Nicolas Plain, Emilienne Lepoutre and Olivier Jacquet).
Working languages: French, Spanish, English and Portuguese
