I am a researcher and writer from Johannesburg, and a PhD candidate at the Centre for African Studies, University of Basel. Previously, I earned MA degrees in International Relations (University of the Witwatersrand, 2011) and Political Communication (University of Cape Town, 2015). I have worked in the private, nonprofit and public sectors in South Africa, and my essays, art writing and short stories have appeared in Africa's a Country, Kalahari Review, New Frame and more. My research and writing focuses on the nexus between international development, mediated communication and culture.
