I joined the African Studies Centre in 2017-18. My post is a joint appointment with the Department of Politics and International Relations. Before moving to African Studies, I held a Departmental Lectureship in African Politics in the Oxford Department of International Development (QEH) from 2011 to 2017. Prior to joining the Oxford Department of International Development (QEH), I worked as a risk consultant for Control Risks (London). Thematically, I am interested in:
- Intellectuals, Society and the State.
- Civil-Military Relations.
- The Existence and Uses of ‘Evil’ in Politics.
- Intelligence Studies.
- Security Sector Reform.
- Biographical Research.
- Southern African Politics (especially Botswana, Zimbabwe, Madagascar, Swaziland, Lesotho).
