I'm a political scientist focusing on democratic institutionalisation, parliaments, political parties, political corruption, and natural resources (petroleum resources management and revenue management). My geographic expertise includes Malawi, Bangladesh, Angola, Ghana, Nigeria, and francophone West Africa. I completed my PhD in comparative African studies at the University of Tromsø, Norway, in 1997. I was the Research Director at CMI from 2000-2003 and Director for the U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre from 2002-2006. You can see all my publications on the CMI profile page.
