Summary

Biography

Léo began by studying an undergraduate degree in Physics. During his undergraduate, he developed a passion for charity work, seizing opportunities to volunteer in local and international projects. Following a masters in international development, Léo began working for a small team at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) who developed RHoMIS. The RHoMIS tool has increased in popularity. To better deal with the increased rate of data collection, Léo focused on developing systems for automated data-cleaning and analysis. This reduced the time needed to provide the data to the projects who need it and facilitated rojects who need it and facilitated the harmonisation of the wider dataset.
