Team Member, NAEC team - Togo
ONG SG2D (Science Géologique pour un Développement Durable / Geological science for a sustainable development)

Engineer, Geologist and amateur astronomer, he was a primary teacher, then a teacher of Life and Earth Sciences (SVT) in colleges and high schools in Togo. Having noted a failure in the dissemination and popularization of sciences in Togo, he engages and then founded the ONG SG2D (Science Géologique pour un Développement Durable), an association of young geologists and environmentalists from Togo, which works for the promotion of Geology and Astronomy in Togo. He therefore occupies the position of Executive Coordinator within this association. His commitment to the popularization of science, particularly in geology and especially in astronomy, allowed him to be appointed
as IAU National Outreach Coordinator , representing the Office for Astronomy Outreach/the International Astronomical Union (IAU) in Togo. Being an educator, he also works for the education of young Togolese and especially primary and secondary teachers in Togo in Astronomy.

Appointed as NAEC until: Aug. 1, 2024
