Hello. I’m a Ph.D. student in Industrial & Systems Engineering from Cameroon. I obtained both my B.S. and M.S. from URI in 2017 and 2018, respectively. My area of interest in ISE is Ergonomics. My research focuses on understanding how team communication affects team performance using a method known as fuzzy cognitive mapping. Currently, my work is exploring how these fuzzy cognitive maps can be compared in general, and with communication, using graph theory and advanced algorithms. Ultimately, I wish to continue with people research.

Outside of school, I love Sci-Fi, reading, and anime. Some of my (current) favorite fandoms include Doctor Who, Merlin (BBC), Marvel, and Harry Potter.
