I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Macalester College. I received my Ph.D from UCLA, specializing in comparative politics, political economy, and social movements. During the 2018-2019 academic year, I will be a Residential Fellow of the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study.

My book, Political Protest in Contemporary Africais now available from Cambridge University Press. It explores the drivers of African protests, with an emphasis on Niger and Senegal.

I am currently studying the relationship between activist cohesion and protest outcomes in Africa, Europe, and the Americas.

I teach Comparative Politics, Political Economy of Development, African Politics, and Empirical Research Methods.
