I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow of the African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA) initiative on Mobility and Sociality in Africa’s Emerging Urban Research project at the Department of Anthropology, University of Cape Town, South Africa. My research interest includes mobility, migration, and peace and development studies. Having a doctorate degree in Conflict Transformation and Peace Studies gave me the opportunity to research on human behaviour and culture within the African societies.


Academic Interests and Current Research Projects

My research interests include migration, mobility, and peace and development studies. I am currently researching on the reasons for people’s immobility in Africa. In addition, I also research on structural xenophobia in Southern Africa.

I am part of the research initiative that brings together five African Universities dedicated to cultivating a generation of African scholars that will reshape global social society theory and scholarly conversation on mobility, cities and social change.
