My primary research interests are histories of law, crime and punishment in Africa, with my recent doctoral research being completed on capital punishment in British Africa through archival work in Kenya, Malawi and Tanzania. I also research criminal law in the British Empire and the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council.  I am interested more widely in African gender histories, violence and warfare in Africa, and in imperial and global history. My current research projects focus on histories of child combatants in modern African warfare, and the development of human rights and humanitarian discourses in West Africa, with a particular focus on Ghana.
