I am interested in the political geographies of (in)security in the 20th and 21st centuries. Specifically, I investigate how security and disaster response apparatuses, peacekeeping and military technologies map landscapes of crisis and intervention. My regional focus is the West African Sahel, and my research is informed by critical security studies, postcolonial theory, literature on race and U.S. liberalism, and science and technology studies.
