About me

F1D6E23D-58F7-40EA-A2C7-970D3B5AA228

For the past thirteen years, I have worked as a consultant in electoral affairs, most recently as Head of Electoral Support for the United Nations in DRC, and Chief Technical Advisor for ECES in Burkina Faso. I have headed international election observation missions for the European Union and the Carter Center, and was a guest lecturer of the International Criminal Court on Libya, the Association of World Electoral Bodies in Korea, and lecture twice a year in a postgraduate program on international electoral standards, comparative methodology of international observation, and good practices.

I have extensive experience in election observation, technical assistance, rule of law and programs aimed at strengthening democracy. I participated in election missions with the EU, UNDP, OSCE and the Carter Center in Iraq, Libya, Benin, Ethiopia, Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Kenya, Madagascar and Latvia.

Specialized in democratization and rule of law, I have conducted fieldwork and NGO programming across Africa and the Middle East. Before this, I worked as a lawyer in Japan and France and was also Director of Operations at Lawyers Without Borders in Brussels. I hold a Master’s in law from the University of Aix-Marseille, in France, and a degree in economy from Otaru University of Commerce, in Japan.
