Currently attending the University of Southern California in the Masters of Public Diplomacy degree program at the Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism. I've recently completed an MA from the University of California – Los Angeles in African Studies where I focused on ICT, Democracy, and Development. My current research interests focus on Digital Diplomacy, Internet Freedom, and political economy of Sub-Saharan Africa.
