I am an experienced researcher and practitioner with a demonstrated history of research and project management. I hold a PhD in Sociology of Development and Change from Wageningen University & Research, Masters in Environmental Science and Technology from IHE Delft, and Bachelor of Science in Natural Resources and Environmental Studies – Forestry from University of Juba. My research interest revolves around Governance, Conflict Studies, and Land Tenure in Africa.
I contribute to academia by publishing peer-reviewed articles and chapters to edited volumes; and to practice by consulting for governmental and nongovernmental organisations and research institutions in South Sudan, East Africa and Europe. My consultancy roles cover different aspects of the project management cycle, which build from my past experiences. I designed projects; managed project resources and funds; identified, recruited, trained and managed project staff; and designed tools for project Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E). I write periodic reports to my supervisors and assist them in writing quarterly and annual reports for clients.
I am proficient in English, Arabic, Dutch and a few languages in South Sudan. I also enjoy a wide range of professional networks with several academic institutions and aid agencies in South Sudan and East Africa.
