I come from the North of Senegal, a sub-Saharan country. I grew up in a Fulani community. Before founding OSIEC in 2020, I have built a decade-long career working in Environmental and Social Impact Assessment. Today I lead OSIEC, a consultancy firm advising investors on environmental & social risk. I also work with the public and private sectors and help investment funds and local populations on how to develop sustainable projects in poor countries.

Prior to launching OSIEC, I served as Managing Director for EES, a Senegalese company that supports the first Public-Private Partnership in Solar Energy Projects in Senegal, making Senegal the first West African country in renewable energy. I have assisted local organizations and spoken on education, leadership, and entrepreneurship in some schools in Senegal and Burkina Faso.
