My research interests are in African politics and qualitative research methodologies. Specifically, my work focuses on state-society relations in post-conflict societies. I study individual strategies of everyday resistance to government policies in Africa, with emphasis on rural Rwanda. My current research analyses political patronage networks in two urban slums in Nairobi, Kenya. I also study interpretative, ethnographic and narrative research methods, with particular focus on research ethics and doing research in difficult environments.
My work has been published in numerous journals, including Canadian Journal of African Studies; International Journal of Transitional Justice, and Peace Review, and edited volumes, including Africa Yearbook: Politics, Economy and Society South of the Sahara (Brill, 2009) and Surviving Field Research: Working in violent and difficult situations (Routledge, 2009).
