About My Work
My research combines my interests in international and comparative political economy, African politics and development theory. My current research is about the political economy of oil and development in the Gulf of Guinea of Africa.

My research, which focuses on Angola and Nigeria, is about local content policies and their role in linking oil extraction to industrial development and economic growth in the non-oil economy. I write about the changed domestic and international context for embracing state-led approaches to development through natural resources and questions of imperialism, capitalist development through oil, local/community participation, and natural resource governance.

My work has been published in New Political Economy, Canadian Journal of African Studies, Journal of Contemporary African Studies, Review of African Political Economy, Cadernos de Estudos Africanos, and elsewhere.

My book, The Petro-Developmental State in Africa: Making Oil Work in Angola, Nigeria and the Gulf of Guinea, will be available in September 2015.
