He joined the Senegal EITI Committee as Data Manager in August 2015. The EITI is the global standard for the good governance of oil, gas and mineral resources.

Prior to that position, Mr PAYE gained valuable experiences in mineral industries (gold, phosphates, mineral sands) through various operations in Senegal. He also gained experiences in oil industry at PETROSEN as Engineer in Training. He graduated as Geological Engineer in 2007 from Institut des Sciences de la Terre (IST) of Dakar University.
