I am a graduate student and anthropologist at The George Washington University, and I study conflict and intervention in sub-Saharan Africa. My research discusses infrastructures of intervention, radio, justice and reconciliation, demobilization, and counterinsurgency. Geographically, my focus is on the border area of Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, South Sudan, and the Central African Republic, especially areas affected by the Lord’s Resistance Army.
Prior to coming to GW, I previously studied at Yale University and Arizona State University, and I taught high school social studies in Arizona and Connecticut. I also lived in Queens. At Yale I wrote a thesis about radio-based humanitarian interventions in Uganda and the DRC and I was a Managing Editor at the Yale Journal of International Affairs. I write here about African politics and humanitarian interventions as well as radical left politics, war, history, and anthropology more generally.
