About

AEHB31nq_400x400.jpg

I am a post-doctoral research fellow in the Digital Civil Society Lab at Stanford.

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 , and then worked as a lecturer in Stanford’s Center for African studies.

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:

  • International news and media representations of Africa.
  • Social media, civil society and digital rights in several African contexts.
  • The development of a tool – the Africa Stereotype Scanner (ASTRSC) – that deploys digital technologies to scan stereotypes and implicit biases in journalistic writing.
