About Me

My current work focuses on transitional justice adopted both during and after armed conflict. I research the ways that justice processes can be used for good or for evil through political consolidation, political exclusion, social reconciliation, narrative construction, and for economic gain.

I have looked at these issues in East Africa, primarily Rwanda and Uganda. To explore justice in post-conflict democracies, I have conducted field work in Northern Ireland, Turkey, and Nepal.
