I am a PhD candidate at the Charles Sturt Centre for Law and Justice. My research explores the role of identity in Nigerian vigilantism and state involvement. More generally, my expertise is on state/non-state armed groups, judicial politics, identity, and accountability in sub-Saharan Africa and Turkey.
I have previously worked: as a researcher at Ndifuna Ukwazi on security sector reform in South Africa; and as a researcher at Platform for Peace and Justice on the rule of law in Turkey. I am currently employed as a tutor for Crime, Justice and Legal Studies at La Trobe University, and am on the executive council for the African Studies Association of Australasia and the Pacific.
My work has been published through Routledge, African Arguments, Index on Censorship, Vocal Europe, The Conversation Africa, amongst others as shown in the Portfolio section.
