As an award-winning researcher and author on war and peace, I am an expert in peacebuilding, peacekeeping, international aid, and African civil wars, especially in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I have authored the books The Trouble with the Congo, Peaceland, and The Frontlines of Peace in addition to 31 scholarly, policy, and news articles. When I am not out conducting research, I work as a Professor of Political Science—specializing in international relations—at Barnard College, Columbia University (USA).

I’ve won the 2021 Emerging Scholar award from the International Studies Association’s International Security Studies Section, meant to recognize scholars who have made (through their publications) “the most significant contribution to the field of security studies”! I feel humbled—and so absolutely thrilled!
