I am working as Research Fellow at the Center for Conflict Studies of the Philipps-University of Marburg in Germany. Prior to that, I received my Doctorate in Political Science and a Master of Arts in Peace and Conflict Studies from the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg in Germany.
In the context of Forced Migration and Refugee Studies and Peace and Conflict Studies, my research focus is on governance, refugee protection and assistance, conflict-induced displacement, gender as well as sexual and gender-based violence. My regional focus is on Africa, in particular East Africa and Uganda.
In addition to research, I have also worked for international organizations such as UNICEF, GIZ and World Vision in refugee assistance, human rights and gender mainstreaming in Uganda, Germany and other countries.
