I am an environmental anthropologist specializing in energy and natural resources in the Global South. My research engages with the politics and practices that shape decisions about and attitudes toward natural resource use and management in sub-Saharan Africa. My doctoral research in Social Anthropology (University of Oxford, 2018) examined the multiple and dynamic values of natural resources in rural Tanzania at the intersection of mining, development, and wildlife conservation. I am currently developing this research as a book. I am also in the early stages of a new research project, which turns attention to refined uranium products in Tanzania and their domestic regulation.
