I am the Associate Director of Research at the Digital Civil Society Lab at Stanford Univeristy, and a Social Science Research Scholar in the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (PACS).

Prior to this, I completed my PhD within the School of Media & Communication at the University of Leeds (UK),  was a research associate on the “Media, Conflict & Democratisation” project at the University of Oxford , then worked as a lecturer in the Center for African Studies and a postdoc at the Digital Civil Society Lab, both at Stanford.

My interests lie at the intersection of media globalization, journalism studies, digital cultures, and African studies. Currently, my research agenda is structured around three axes:

  • Stereotypes and media representations of Africa.
  • Digital technologies, journalism and civil society in several African contexts.
  • The development of a tool that deploys digital technologies to scan stereotypes and implicit biases in journalistic writing.
