Biography

I joined the Internet Society in April 2022 as Internet Technology and Development Expert. I will be focused on the Sustainable Peering Infrastructure and Community Networks development, especially in the African region.

Prior to this position at the Internet Society, I served as Network Architect at Orange Burkina Faso and stand as Orange Expert, Future Network on behalf of Orange Group. In this professional journey, I have significantly contributed to the company's Core and IP backbone network transformation and played a key role in all IP/MPLS projects.

I have worked also for a decade as a Regional Information Technology and Network Manager for Central Africa and the Great Lakes region at Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF). I have spent time building digital campuses and ICT infrastructures for African Universities through open-source software solutions.

In the domain of the Internet community, I am one of the founding members of the Internet Society Burkina Faso Chapter and chaired its board from 2015 to 2020. To support the peering and interconnection community in Burkina Faso, I stand as Executive Director at Burkina Faso Internet Exchange Point (BFIX) and served as Africa Peering and Interconnection Program committee member.

I hold an MSc in computer science with a major in network design and security from the University of Reims in France.

When not busy with network challenges, I enjoy talking about all kinds of relaxation approaches and humor :)

I am based in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
