Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
I am postgraduate researcher in the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences, University of Southampton. My research investigates the demographic consequences of the Sierra Leone civil war, 1991-2002. The aim of the study is twofold. First, it will critically evaluate the demographic consequences of conflict in Sierra Leone, 1991-2002 by undertaking a retrospective investigation of the components that contributed the most to population change during the period of the civil war. Second, it aims to uncover the mechanisms that led to population decline in the Kono District in the intercensal period. The research is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC Reference No.: ES/1026177/1).

I have an undergraduate degree in BA in History (University of Southampton, 2007) and postgraduate degrees in Violence, Conflict and Development (School of Oriental and African Studies, 2009) and Demography (University of Southampton, 2011).

My main interests include the demographic consequences of conflict, forced migration, human rights violations and peacebuilding. I have contributed to an expert report for the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, United Nations in the summer of 2012. As well as this, I am a founding member of the Global South Forum, an interdisciplinary network of researchers and practitioners at the University of Southampton.
