I am a geographer and a political ecologist with an empirical focus on urban environmental politics and processes in Sub-Saharan Africa. I am currently pursuing two grant-funded empirical projects. The first examines the changing dynamics in the South African wastescape, including the impact of technology, formalization, and finance on waste livelihoods. The second explores heterogeneous infrastructures of waste and sanitation in urban Uganda. I am also working on a series of manuscripts articulating the southern urban critique, a theoretical intervention that calls for re-thinking urban theory from and through cities in the global south. For more information about my research and teaching, please see my scholarly C.V.
