Responsible for the Department of computer science

Beginning my work in CNSHB as an intern in 1993, I participated in the conception and implementation of the statistic information system on the industrial fisheries of Guinea. I became in April 1994 responsible for the fisheries information system of the fisheries observatory of CNSHB in Guinea, following its implementation. From 1995 to 1998, I was in charge of the FAO database information system dealing with geographic information on West-African fisheries (SIGAFO). From 2000 to 2004, I was a member of a service unit of IRD (Fisheries Information System; SIH) in CNSHB and I participated in the development of information system operational tools for the FIAS project that concerned some countries of the Sub regional Fisheries Commission (SRFC).
