"Love is a combination of care, commitment, knowledge, responsibility, respect and trust." – bell hooks

About me

I work at the intersection of Development-, Crisis-, and Area studies. My research aims to contribute to unpacking the strong but often complex linkages between locally-anchored social dynamics, transnational politics, and global developments. More specifically, I examine the relationship between citizens, different forms of authority, and related dynamics of security and insecurity in spaces where political order is subject to constant renegotiation. Grounded in empirical work, I seek to advance theoretical understanding of how people navigate the political, geographical and/or economic margins with an emphasis on the Central African Republic, the Sahel region, and South Sudan.
