About Me: I am an Associate Professor in Development Politics in the Political Science Department and School of Public Policy at University College London. I am also a Research Associate with the Centre for Social Change at the University of Johannesburg. Prior to joining UCL, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Governance and Local Development (GLD) program at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden (2015-2017); I am currently an Associated Researcher with GLD and a member of the steering committee. I received my PhD in Political Science from the Wilf Family Department of Politics at New York University (NYU) (2015). I study ethnic, race, development, and African politics with a focus on political participation using experimental and survey methods.
