  • I am a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at Yale University, specializing in comparative politics, international relations, and contemporary Africa. My research interests include migration, citizenship, and democratization, with a focus on emigrant participation in electoral politics. My research has been supported by the Social Science Research Council, the Institute for Social and Policy Studies, the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies, and the Yale Council on African Studies.

    Prior to attending Yale, I worked as an Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaker and impact producer. I hold an MA (Honors) in International Relations from the University of Chicago and an AB in Public Policy from Duke University.
