I’m an anthropologist studying conflict, intervention, and technology in sub-Saharan Africa.

My current project discusses infrastructures of intervention and humanitarian ethics, specifically around an early warning radio network in the Congo. I have also written about justice and reconciliation, radio, demobilization, and counterinsurgency. My primary field site is in the border area between Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the Central African Republic.

I am a PhD student at George Washington University. In addition to my dissertation on the radio network, I am finishing a project on media ideologies of Instagram, and continue to study FM radio interventions. I am currently a contributing editor at Cultural Anthropology. I’m also involved in political organizing work in the DC area. Prior to coming to GW, I studied at Yale University, where I was a managing editor at the Yale Journal of International Affairs, and Arizona State University, and have taught high school social studies. I write here about African politics and humanitarian interventions as well as left politics, conflict, history, and anthropology more broadly.
