joined Indigo Publications in August, 2008. Holding a PhD in geography from the Institut Francais de Geopolitique (part of Paris 8 University), he has also been a research fellow in the sub-Saharan program of the Institut Francais des Relations Internationles (IFRI) since June, 2010. He is a guest speaker at France's Ecole de Guerre, HEC, Sciences-Po Paris, Ecole Nationale d'Administration (ENA) and several engineering colleges. Auge's research focuses on governance in the oil, gas and electricity sectors in African nations. He has looked especially at the struggle between local, national and international interests to control oil zones as well as border disputes relating to oil and gas fields. In addition to Nigeria, Angola, Algeria, Gabon and Congo-B, he has concentrated on recent and future oil and gas producers like Sudan, Chad, Mauritania, Uganda, Ghana, Mozambique and Tanzania. His doctoral thesis examined oil production in conflict zones, and specifically in the Great Lakes and East African regions.
