    I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Political Science at Columbia University and a Predoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley. My work focuses on the comparative politics of developing countries, mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa. In my dissertation, I explore the interaction of state and non-state efforts to establish order and combat crime. My research employs experimental methods and formal theory. I have conducted field work in South Africa, Uganda and Ethiopia. My work has been supported by the Center for Study of Development Strategies (CSDS) and the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL).
