I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Anthropology at American University in Washington, DC focusing on development, agriculture, and social movements in Ghana. My interests are multifaceted:
- Food sovereignty efforts in response to the introduction of “improved” seeds (e.g. hybrid and genetically modified) vis-à-vis the African Green Revolution. Learn more about my dissertation research here.
- Colonial legacies in Ghana, specifically in relation to food and agriculture, development, education, and subjectivity.
- Processes of re-colonization, and the ongoing US militarization in West Africa.
I hold a MA in Public Anthropology from American University and a BA in International Studies from the University of California-San Diego.
