Elisée is a business economist with interests in mining economics, mineral beneficiation policy interventions and green economy. His research for the last 7 years has focused on studying the influence of quality initiatives on the operations of a metal recycling company and the effects of BRICS partnership on mineral beneficiation. The two studies led to him obtaining a Master’s degree in Business Administration and a PhD. He lectured at the Durban University of Technology before joining the Minerals to Metals Initiatives at the University of Cape Town as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. He currently studies the dimensions of coltan and cobalt resource curse in the DRC and investigates ways to integrate mineral beneficiation practices in the SADC.
