I am a researcher and Lecturer in Journalism, Radio and Communication at the University of Sheffield, UK. My research focuses on the role and impact of radio in conflict-affected areas. I am the principal investigator on two large research projects: a large UKRI-funded project investigating perceptions and representations of women’s rights and empowerment by radio in Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso; and an urgent Covid-19 response project funded by Elrha examining the use of radio and social media to address misinformation about the pandemic among internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Burkina Faso. Both projects build on current work by the FemmePowermentAfrique project, which I lead.
