My research focuses on the political economy of conflict, peace-building, and development (with a focus on education development); the relationships between environmental and climate change, water, and insecurity (including implications for conflict and migration); and experiences of violence in international intervention. My research focuses particularly on the Lake Chad region and Sudan and South Sudan. For the past 10 years, I have been involved in numerous policy- and practice-focused research projects with international organizations such as UNICEF and with government bodies in the UK. I completed my PhD and postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of International Relations at the University of Sussex (UK).
