Welcome! I am a political scientist and international development professional with two decades of experience in academia, applied policy research, and research management. I am currently a Senior Research Fellow with the United Nations University's World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER) in Helsinki. I work on the comparative politics of developing countries, with particular attention to issues of inequality, ethnic and identity politics, aid and state fragility, governance, democracy and democratization, and sub-Saharan African politics.
This website is under construction.
