I am a lecturer in the Center for African Studies at Stanford University.

Prior to coming to Stanford, I completed my PhD in Media & Communication within the School of Media & Communication at the University of Leeds (UK), and was then a research associate on the “Media, Conflict & Democratisation” Project (Mecodem) at the University of Oxford (UK).

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

  • Global media representations of Africa
  • Africa’s digital civil society and journalism
