I am a sixth year PhD candidate in the political science department at MIT in Comparative Politics and Models and Methods.  I study comparative politics focusing on political behavior in sub-Saharan Africa. I graduated summa cum laude from Georgetown University with a degree in Government and African Studies in 2010. Before coming to MIT, I worked as the program manager at Columbia University’s Earth Institute on a development project in Nigeria. I am a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow.
