Idrissa Ouedraogo BITSS CatalystGovernance

Idrissa Ouedraogo is a PhD candidate in the Pan African University-African Union, Institute of Governance, Humanities and Social Sciences, and the University of Yaounde II, Cameroon. He obtained a MSc in Governance and Regional Integration from the Pan African University. He also obtained a MSc in Applied Economics from the University of Yaounde II and another MSc in Economics and Financial Engineering from the University of Rennes 1 in France. His main research interests are Governance, Human Development, Welfare Economics, and Regional Integration in Africa. He attended the 2017 BITSS Research Transparency and Reproducibility Training (RT2) in London, which sparked his interest in becoming a Catalyst. His goals as a Catalyst are to sensitize researchers, especially young researchers such as graduate students, to the appropriate tools and road map to follow in order to practice transparent and reproducible research in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, and Francophone African countries. Understanding these tools down the line will enable good academic quality work and better scientific publishable work in peer-review journals.
