I am a researcher and writer from Johannesburg, South Africa. In 2019, I started a PhD degree at the Centre for African Studies, University of Basel where my research interests involve climate issues in South Africa and Nigeria.
Before this, I completed Masters degrees in International Relations (2011) and Political Communication (2015) at the University of the Witwatersrand and University of Cape Town. My first dissertation investigated human security threats to refugee women, my second looked at the mediatisation of public protest and law enforcement, focusing on labour protest on South Africa's platinum belt and the 2012 Marikana massacre.
While studying, I worked as a researcher in development, business and government. More recently, I worked on the African Mobilities project, providing research assistance.
My essays, art writing and short stories have appeared in New Frame, Africa's a Country, Kalahari Review, Prufrock, the Mail & Guardian, Bubblegumclub and more.
