I mostly write and research about Africa. Specifically, my main interests are the role of information technology in economic development and political change, as well as the role of the United States on the African continent (see sidebar for recent publications).
Prior to Berkman, I worked as a program officer for USAID’s Northern Uganda Peace Initiative (NUPI), helping to advise the Government of Uganda on a comprehensive plan for post-conflict reconciliation. Between 2005-2007, I helped start and direct Global Youth Partnership for Africa (GYPA), a 501(c)3 that brings together American and African youth leaders.
I am a staff editor of the Fletcher Forum of World Affairs and and proud and active member of the Global Voices Online community. I blog at Harvard's I&DBlog, and generally love writing of all sorts.
