I've written for Global Voices since about 2008. Mainly on issues related to East Africa and South Sudan.

​In 2017, I completed an MA in African Studies from University of Copenhagen. On 1 November 2019, I started a PhD which aims at unpacking local discourse on humanitarianism expressed in everyday life in a refugee-hosting community in Tanzania.

I have lived and travelled extensively in the Balkans and in East Africa in connection with work spread out over 20 years in development, media and activism, often in refugee-hosting and post-conflict areas.
