My work tackles the economic choices governments and people make, and how these decisions affect the day-to-day quality of life in developing countries.
My passion lies in electricity infrastructure. As a German-Nigerian, I have witnessed the impact of power on populations, penetrating the key areas of life that determine your education and opportunities in work and beyond. My work has the ultimate goal of contributing to improving living standards. I want what I do to help create a level starting point for every bright mind.
As a trained economist I am obsessed with the causes of and threats to economic development. This has led me to found initiatives and work for institutions that implement solutions to on-the-ground problems in both developing and industrialized countries. My career started at the World Bank, where I contributed to a rethinking effort for the infrastructure division's approach to power sector reform.
After completing my PhD in economics, I advised equity investors by conducting the financial and economic due diligence to inform their investment decisions. Now I work as a senior consultant with CPCS, in a team that solves the biggest transport and power problems for governments and multilaterals.
In my free time I run AspireXAccess, a social enterprise that equips socio-economically disadvantaged youth with tools to tackle critical life junctures.
You'll find me in South London with my partner.
