Interests: Modern West African History, Gender, Human Rights, Witchcraft and Witch camps 

I am interested in how society legitimizes religious violence and the impact of human rights laws in West Africa. My work explores violence against people (mostly women) who are perceived to be witches in 20th century Ghana. I am also a research assistant on a study of Covid-19 in West Africa and its impact on household economies.
