Momar Dieng is a mathematician, economic & education policy advisor and elections specialist. He served until recently as Senior Technical and Policy Advisor in Senegal’s Ministry of Education, spearheading the implementation of critical initiatives designed to substantially improve academic outcomes. In that capacity, he led the multi-year technological transformation of the national education system, providing 3 million Senegalese students with access to internet and technology for an enriched and modern educational experience. While a mathematician by training, Dieng’s primary interest is in developing multidisciplinary approaches to identify and address development challenges in sub-Saharan Africa in general and in his native Senegal in particular. He regularly consults on impact evaluation, educational reform, EdTech and election-related matters (namely polling, campaign strategy, and the use of technology and quantitative methods to deter and detect electoral fraud). He delivered the 2016 Bartlett Memorial Lecture in mathematics at the University of Arizona on the topic of election forensics.
