I’m an assistant professor of political science at Morehouse College. My research interests are at the intersection of International Relations theory and international justice.  My current book project, titled “Outsourcing Justice: Africa and the Politics of the International Criminal Court,” explores the causes and mechanisms of perversion of international legal norms.

I have previously obtained a M.A in Political Science from the University of Florida, a M.A in Political Science from Ohio University, and a M.A in International Affairs from Ohio University.  I also earned a B.A  in International Studies from The Ohio State University and a B.A in Geography from Université Cheikh Anta Diop, in Dakar, Senegal.

My research and political commentary has been featured in Al Jazeera English, BBC Radio, Deutsche Welle, RFI, Quartz Africa, and Trouw. I am also a Contributing Editor to Africa Is A Country. I have done consulting work for various organizations, including Freedom House as an analyst, and the National Science Foundation as a panel reviewer.
