My name is Samuel Kembou. I am an Economist. I received my training in Cameroon (University of Yaoundé 2), France (Universities of Lyon and Aix-Marseille), the US (Dartmouth College), and the UK (University of Cambridge). My research expertise is in health, education, and social protection.

I am a Jr. Lecturer in Economics at the Swiss Graduate School of Public Administration. I take part in Econ teaching and serve as the associate editor of the IDHEAP Policy Brief initiative.

I am originally from Cameroon and have lived and worked on the African continent for most of my life: 25 years between West and Central Africa. I am the former Country Representative and Research Manager for Innovations for Poverty Action in West Africa (Côte d’Ivoire office).
