My research focuses on sport and development in Africa, specifically in Ghana. I am interested in the intersections of sport and society, culture, politics, and economics, from contemporary and historical perspectives. I have published several articles on the subject, and I am currently working on turning my dissertation into a book. My other fields of interest and research include the history of family planning in the Middle East and online activism among the Eritrean diaspora.
