My blog reflects my research interests: East Africa and the Horn; international security; African emerging markets; global financial regulation; U.S.-China relations; and the emergence of China as a major global economic and political actor. Occasional intellectual detours likely.
I am a doctoral canditate in Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford. I hold an M.Phil in Comparative Government from Oxford (2008), and a B.A. in Political Science and Philosophy from Northwestern University (2006).
