I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My dissertation research is on the causes of deconcentration, with a focus on Nigeria. More broadly, I am interested in political economics, inequality and representation, and quantitative methods.

Since October 2016 I have also been a pre-doctoral researcher at the Latin American Public Opinion Project at Vanderbilt University. Prior to that, I was a Junior Visiting Scholar at Nuffield College, University of Oxford.

Before coming to Wisconsin, I was a research assistant to Olufemi Vaughan (Department of Africana Studies, Bowdoin College) and a consultant for the Department for International Development. I have an M.A. from Wisconsin, an M.Phil. from the University of Cambridge, and a B.A. from Johns Hopkins University.
