I'm a political scientist specialising in the politics of taxation and informal institutions, the political economy of development, and conflict and statebuilding.

I am a Research Fellow at the International Centre for Tax and Development at the Institute of Development Studies (University of Sussex) and a Senior Research Associate at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy (University of Toronto).

I completed a PhD in Political Science at the University of Toronto and have mixed methods and experimental research experience in Somalia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sierra Leone, Sudan, South Sudan, and Ghana.
