About

I graduated with a PhD from the Department of Political Science at the University of Florida in 2017. My research interests include British colonial legacies, democratic survival, African politics and political methodologies.

My current project is a study of why democratic institutions in some former British colonies survive while other break down. It challenges the appropriateness of treating British colonial rule as a single conceptual category and contends that this practice obscures essential internal differences. In order to address this gap, I developed an original conceptual typology that systematizes data on two dimensions of the colonial experience. For the project, I completed 17 months of archival and interview research in Britain, Malaysia, Mauritius and Ghana. I utilize comparative historical analysis and statistical analysis in a multi-method framework.
