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 security, judicial politics, identity, and accountability in sub-Saharan Africa and Turkey.
I have previously worked as a researcher at Ndifuna Ukwazi on police accountability and 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 criminology tutor 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, among others as shown in the Portfolio section.
