Postdoctoral Researcher in Politics of Architecture, SOAS, University of London

I am a trained architect and researcher who creates, studies, teaches and documents histories, theories, and politics of the architecture of Africa.

I am currently a visiting postdoctoral scholar at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at the University of Stanford and a postdoctoral researcher on the African State Architecture Project at SOAS, University of London. I have a PhD in Politics and International Studies from SOAS, University of London, an MSc in African Studies from The University of Oxford, and Masters and BSc Architecture degrees from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

I am writing a book, based on my PhD research, on ‘The Architecture of Education in Ghana’ which examines nation-building, social class, and modernness through a longue durée analysis of the sociopolitical and physical architectures of secondary schools. My academic publications, creative writing, and public scholarship have appeared in 'African Affairs', 'Al Jazeera', 'Curator: The Museum Journal', and 'Tampered Press'.
