I am interested in all aspects of human security. In particular, I focus upon the role of public and private policing agencies in shaping collective order. I am interested in the powers, culture and accountability of public and private policing agencies. Looking at trends in policing tells us a lot about current directions in politics and economics at home and abroad.

Research information:

My interest is in examining how intellectual property rights or legal frameworks for governance and protection of knowledge have diverse impacts on many spheres, including but not limited to agriculture, food security, biotechnology, biodiversity conservation, biosafety, human rights (access to health, education and benefits of technology/scientific advancements, etc). I am also concerned with the nature of interaction or impact that intellectual property rights have in regard to developmental aspirations of marginalized peoples, especially indigenous and local communities across the globe. Most of my work focus on mapping and understanding the interface of intellectual property and development. I also work within the broader international political relations of power between Africa, indeed, the global south and the global north.
