Personal profile

Research interests

My research so far has focused on Kenya and used a gender lens to explore the political economy of Kenya and the limits of women’s agency within it.

My doctoral research relied on the life-stories of self-identified sex workers of Mombasa to explore questions of agency in neoliberal Kenya. I later moved on to interrogate sex worker activism and politics in East Africa.

Currently I am developing my research in two directions:

  1. I am interested in exploring gendered consequences of new large infrastructure projects in East African states.
  2. I am working with colleagues from Sociology and Anthropology to develop a new project on informality in food security strategies of Turks and Caicos Islands.
