Africa • Water and climate security • Cities • AI and big data • Labour and infrastructure • Intersectional justice • Geopolitics

I am a political sociologist who studied at the London School of Economics and institutions in the Netherlands and Singapore. Previously, I have widely studied climate security issues on the African continent ranging from water conflicts over infrastructure and resource allocation to big data systems. Throughout these experiences, I have developed an acumen for mediation and identifying the social, spatial, and political impacts of the climate crisis and global inequality.


At Both ENDS I am motivated to support a continuous local effort for African self-determination and climate justice. In this line of work, I hope to facilitate a wide-range of intersectional ambitions to secure an enjoyable livelihood for Indigenous and all other Africans.
