I am qualified in medicine in Burkina and worked as a clinician before entering methodological research. I completed in 2014 a Master of public heath (oriented in quantitative methods) and in 2018, a PhD in full-time in clinical research and public heath, both at Aix Marseille University, France. My PhD thesis topic was the extension of excess mortality analysis in to the field of clinical research. Previously, I worked in the SESSTIM research unit, as a biostatistician, mainly working on excess hazard and net survival methods in the field of clinical trials. I joined the Bourguignon Digestive Cancer Registry ( EPICAD team - UMR 1231) in January 2020 as a postdoctoral research fellow.
