About

My main research interests are on the causes, actors, and dynamics of violence and war, orders of violence beyond the state, state dynamics and international interventions. I am also interested in the relation between cities and states, the link between displacement and urbanisation (securityonthemove.co.uk,) and the political economy that links displacement with urban reconstruction. Currently, I am conducting three research projects. Financed by AHRC/DFID, I compare protection practices of UN and AU military peacekeepers in the DRC and Somalia. The research studies experiences of military personnel and contrasts them with the experiences of civilians and aid workers. My second, Carnegie-funded research project uses an infrastructural lens to examine international relations between the Arabian Gulf and the Horn of Africa, and the effects of port expansions on the everyday of city dwellers in the Horn. A third, ESRC funded research project, examines how urban poor access infrastructures. It looks into eight cities in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Somaliland, and Zimbabwe and works with civil society organizations to improve infrastructural services in marginalized neighborhoods.
