Research Analyst Dr. Germain Adebiyi Boco

Dr. Adébiyi Germain Boco received a PhD in Demography (with distinction) in 2011 from the Université de Montréal and has an MSc in Demography (with distinction) from Catholic University of Louvain (Belgium) and a BSc in Econometrics and Economics from the University of Abomey-Calavi (Benin). His Ph.D. was a comparative study of individual and community level effects on child mortality in sub-Saharan African countries.

Boco’s current research investigates the mechanisms through which societal-level constructs (i.e., income inequality, religious environment) play in shaping health outcomes across the life span. His methodological toolkit ranges from traditional demographic analysis including survival analysis, microsimulation methods and population projections, to techniques in causal inference as well as qualitative research and the design of multilevel and longitudinal methods for investigating societal influences on health outcomes throughout the life course.

Dr. Boco has acted as a consultant and expert to several health programs and international development projects funded by The United States Agency for International Development, The World Bank, Care International, PlaNet Finance West Africa, and several governments in Africa. Dr. Boco has worked closely with Dr. Susan A. McDaniel, doing data analysis, providing analytic methods for research projects, and developing international comparative data analysis. Boco is currently publishing and is published in refereed journals and has presented nearly twenty conference presentations and posters.
