Harvard University, Department of Government
Considering the implications of digital currency on Africa
I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Government at Harvard University, where I study sub-Saharan Africa and political economy. My dissertation looks at the role of the state in business transactions in developing countries. During the 2012-2013 academic year I conducted research in Lagos, Nigeria. My research is currently supported by the Centre for Economic Policy Research, the Foreign Language and Area Studies Program, and the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs. Prior to coming to Harvard, I worked with human rights organizations in Liberia and Nigeria.
