Temporality, Ageing & the Life Course; Ethnicity & the Politics of Decentralization in Kenya; The History and Politics of Large-Scale Infrastructure Projects in Eastern Africa and the Horn
Kenya, Nairobi, Northern Kenya
I am an anthropologist with interests in social, political and ecological transformations, and the anthropology of the state, with a regional focus on northern Kenya. I hold a BA in Anthropology from the University of Nairobi & MSc in African Studies from Oxford University. My work mainly explores the entanglement of micro- and macro-level political processes across space and time. Focusing on Kenya, I have published several peer-reviewed journal articles and chapters in edited volumes on topics such as: Elections, Ethnicity & The State; The Politics of Large-Scale Infrastructure Projects; and Statecraft on the Periphery.
