I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate at the United Nations University—Maastricht Economic and Social Research Institute on Innovation and Technology/Maastricht Graduate School of Governance in The Netherlands. My research focuses on contested and relational spaces of resource governance, community mobilization and engagement, and transparency and accountability dynamics in natural resource governance in developing countries. I have been a visiting research fellow at the Accountability Research Center in D.C., George Washington University in D.C. and Columbia University in New York.
