Professional Activity


 Beyond the academic community, much of my professional activity has been associated with work in Sub-Saharan Africa, building on my initial experience as a Peace Corps volunteer teacher in Ethiopia. I have travelled in some thirty countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, and have lived extensively in both Ethiopia (3 1/2 year) and in Senegal (1 1/5 years), I have been a Fulbright Senior Fellow in the Faculty of Business and Economics of Addis Ababa in the spring 2009, as well as a Fulbright Visiting Senior Lecturer at the University of Dakar in the spring of 1984. In addition to acquiring competency in various languages, I also have provided professional consulting services to a variety of organizations. They include: The World Bank, UNESCO, FAO, U.S. Agency for International Development, and the U.S. State Department. Services provided are summarized in the enclosed professional vitae, with primary specializations in program evaluation and human resource management training, in both English and French. Information on my 2009 Fulbright Senior Fellowship can be obtained at: PLBEthiopiaFulbright2009.
