Research interests

My research interest is broadly in the Politics of Natural Resource Management, specifically Agro-forestry, Conservation, Mineral, and Water Governance in Sub-Saharan Africa. I employ mostly political ecology and political economy frameworks in my analytical and consultative works. I currently do not supervise PhD or Masters students but am happy to provide guidance on new and ongoing research that aligns with my research interest.
