Bio

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Africana Studies at John Jay College of Criminal Justice-City University of New York. I graduated with a Ph.D. in History from Yale University in 2010, and before that earned an A.B. at Princeton University. Before coming to John Jay College, I was a Theodore Lentz Fellow in Human Rights at Webster University (2012-2013), a Postdoctoral Researcher and Lecturer at the University of Chicago (2010-2012), and Visiting Lecturer at Harvard University (2009-2010).

My research focuses on Christianity, law, and human rights in Cameroon and Central-West Africa. I am also interested in applications of human rights law and philosophy in techniques of Corporate Social Responsibility in Africa. I am the author of the forthcoming book with Jamed Currey, Faith, Power, and Family: Christianity and Social Transformation in French Cameroon and the editor, along with John D. Kelly, of the volume, Corporate Social Responsibility? Human Rights in the New Global Economy, with the University of Chicago Press. I have published articles in Gender & History, French Politics, Culture & Society, the International Journal of African Historical Studies, and Le Mouvement Social.
