RESEARCHER: My research interests encompass the politics of gender in contemporary Africa, women’s political representation, development practice, law, and governance. I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Anthropology and a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at James Madison University Candidate. I obtained by Ph.D. in Anthropology from Emory University. My dissertation research examined how Kenya’s gender quotas for political representation have shaped the political system and the experiences of women who enter political office through gender quota policies.

WRITER: I enjoy writing fiction and creative non-fiction. I often write about faith, fracture, friction, and fragility. A list of all my academic, fiction, and non-fiction writing is under Portfolio.

EDUCATOR: I’ve benefited greatly from teachers and mentors who have invested in me. I love to pass on the knowledge I have gained to other students. I run an educational consultancy known as Higher Ed Prep based in Kenya that helps students seeking international graduate education prepare competitive scholarship and program applications.
