Projects per year
Having completed a PhD at the University of Toronto, Canada, I joined the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Bath in September 2015.
My recent research has explored the politics and meaning of football in postcolonial West Africa, with a particular focus on how sport affords a unique angle of vision onto issues of youth livelihood, gender, labor migration and human trafficking. Drawing primarily on ethnographic modes of inquiry, I am also interested in the broader politics of international development across the Global South, as well as human rights, inequality and social justice.
- Youth livelihoods and identity politics in the Global South
- Labor migration and trafficking in elite sport
- Human rights, inequality and social justice
- Anthropology of sport and physical culture
- The politics of development in West Africa
