Personal profile

Personal profile

I am a human-environment geographer who studies the relationships between land and people. My most recent project focused on land tenure, gender and authority in the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. I am currently working on a project that explores the ways in which the landscapes of post-colonial Africa -- both literal and metaphorical landscapes -- have been shaped by the development industry. 

In the Global Studies program, I teach courses on International Development, Global Poverty, and Markets and Society, among others.
