Welcome

I am a Lecturer in the Centre of African Studies at the University of Edinburgh.

I work as an anthropologist and historian of East Africa. My primary focus is a study of how notions and practices of sovereignty and value were reformulated in the wake of empire. More information about this and other research is available here. Please see my prior publications here, on topics such as infrastructure & humanitarianism, biometrics & bureaucracy, mobile money & statecraft.
