I work to advance justice and create better governance through useful research.
I care about behavioural science and psychology; governance and institutions; conflict; the role of media; dignity and development. I believe research is most useful when it grapples with questions of power.
Before IDinsight, I founded The Dignity Project, a campaign for more respectful development. I’ve also led the Violence Against Children department at Raising Voices in Uganda. Before that, I spent two years with the Busara Center for Behavioral Economics. Previously, I worked in London on a number of research projects on social development, conflict, policy and behavioural science. I’ve led many social science research projects across East Africa, the Middle East and South Asia.
I have a Master’s degree in Communication for Development from Malmö University in Sweden, and an undergraduate degree in War Studies from King’s College, London. My CV is here.
