I am a writer, researcher and investigator interested in conflict, ambiguity, liminality and murkiness.

Currently I work with the Conflict Research Programme at London School of Economics, the Conflict Research Group at Ghent University, the Groupe d’Etudes de Conflit et Sécurité Humaine at CERUKI/ISP–Bukavu and the University of Zurich’s Political Geography unit. I am also a Senior Fellow for the Kivu Security Tracker and the Congo Research Group of the New York University‘s Center on International Cooperation. In the recent past, I have served as an armed groups expert in the UN Group of Experts on the Democratic Republic of the Congo under Security Council resolutions 2293 and 2360. I have also worked with the Rift Valley Institute’s Usalama Projects (I–III), Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and as lecturer at University of Cologne’s Institute for African Studies and Université Simon Kimbangu of Bukavu.Together with friends and colleagues, I run this platform called suluhu – it combines a decolonial consulting collective, a current affairs blog and an open-source, peer-reviewed academic journal. My research has appeared in a series of academic journals, but I also try to regular write and comment on current affairs in outlets such as Foreign Policy, Washington Post, The Guardian, Al Jazeera, Africa is a Country, Jeune Afrique, Financial Times, New York Times, BBC, Reuters, RFI and others.
