Field A

Research Interests

My research is at the intersection of international relations, conflict studies, and political sociology. Eastern and southern Africa, especially the Democratic Republic of Congo, are my areas of geographic specialization. In the Congo, I have conducted research on humanitarian military intervention, armed groups, and local structures of rule. More recently, I became interested in the dynamics between collective contentious action and forms of internationalized authority. My teaching and research interests also include development cooperation, sovereign debt politics, and post-conflict statebuilding.
