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. I am currently studying the interplay of material and political grievances in African protests, with a focus on Niger and Senegal. My book, Political Protest in Contemporary Africais now available from Cambridge University Press.

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

During the 2018-2019 academic year, I will be a Residential Fellow of the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study.
