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 The New York Review of Books, Al Jazeera English, BBC, The Washington Post, Deutsche Welle, RFI, Quartz Africa, African Arguments, World Politics Review, and Trouw. I am also an editor at 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.
