Research

I study humanitarian intervention and armed conflict, with a focus on the politics and ethics of humanitarian interventions and the infrastructures that they use. My current research project concerns a radio early warning network in rural Congo. I approach the politics, history, labor, and routines of the early warning network with an interest in varying definitions of (in)security, rural connectivity, everyday use of technology, militarism and humanitarianism, ethics of protection, sound, idioms of technology, histories of intervention, the politics of community self-defense, and radio technologies.

My previous research project looked at FM radio programs that encouraged rebels to surrender in and around Uganda. I look at message production and reception, humanitarian use of justice and reconciliation narratives, and the militarization of humanitarianism in northern Uganda and northeastern Congo. I am still completing some aspects of this research.
