Welcome! I am a senior lecturer in Security and Risk at the University of Portsmouth. I hold a PhD from Loughborough University. My research agenda takes a broad interdisciplinary approach to terrorism and political violence in Africa and crosscuts aspects of criminology, political science, peace and conflict studies, and computer science.
My work is published or forthcoming in various academic journals, including Terrorism and Political Violence, Studies in Conflict & Terrorism, Safety Science, Journal of Eastern African Studies, and Small Wars & Insurgencies.
Beyond academia, I manage Somali Faces, an award-winning storytelling organisation that raises awareness for social justice in Somalia. I also serve on the DEMAC’s Strategic Advisory Board and the Anglo-Somali Society.
