I am a sociocultural and medical anthropologist with research and teaching interests that span several fields. My research addresses the relationship between activism and governmentality in contemporary movements that take gender and violence as sites of intervention, focusing on mutual entailments of Ghanaian NGOs, global political economy, and humanitarian politics of knowledge and regimes of power. I am particularly interested in productive aspects of political formations whose effects are not simply salutary, the contingencies of governmental regimes, and the unintended consequences of NGOs’ tenuous successes.  Regionally, I focus on global connections and mutual entanglements of Africa, especially Ghana, with Europe and the United States.
