Hey there! I am Berenger Djoumessi Tiague, a PhD graduate from the University of Minnesota in Applied Economics.

I studied topics at the intersection of environmental, development, and agricultural economics.

I am interested in Development Economics, precisely in policy-relevant questions related to Sub-Saharan Africa.

I am passionate about acquiring new skills that I also like to share with people worldwide via video tutorials.

My wonderful Ph.D. committee members are :

Jason Kerwin (Advisor)

Paul Glewwe

I received my Masters’s degree in International & Development Economics at the University of San Francisco with Jesse Antilla Hughes as my advisor. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Dschang in Cameroon.
