Doctoral Candidate in Anthropology & History
I am a historian and anthropologist of the West African Sahel whose research focuses on the politics of nature, extraction and the earth sciences in Senegal, Mali and Guinea. My dissertation explores conflicts over knowledge and property as African "artisanal" gold miners have competed with expatriate miners for access to subterranean resources over the past century. I also manage an oral history project on African migration to greater metropolitan Detroit. In Fall 2015, I am teaching a first-year writing seminar on humanitarianism in Africa.
