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

My current project discusses infrastructures of intervention and humanitarian ethics, and I have 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.

In addition to this research, I am in the middle of a side project on media ideologies of Instagram, and am involved in several political organizing collectives in the DC area. Prior to coming to GW, I studied at Yale University and Arizona State University, and taught high school social studies in Arizona and Connecticut. I was a Managing Editor at theĀ Yale Journal of International Affairs. I write here about African politics and humanitarian interventions as well as left politics, conflict, history, and anthropology more broadly.
