I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student specializing in modern African and global history. My dissertation examines the transnational history of postcolonial education in West Africa, focusing on regional rivals Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire. My work integrates documentary sources available in the U.S., Europe and West Africa with oral history research conducted in Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire.
In 2008, I graduated from the London School of Economics with First Class Honors, holding a B.Sc. in History and International Relations. After LSE, I worked as a secondary-school history teacher for several years, mostly in Washington D.C. and in Singapore.
