I am a writer, researcher and investigator interested in conflict, ambiguity, liminality and murkiness. Currently I work with the Conflict Research Programme at LSE, the Conflict Research Group at Ghent University, the Groupe d’Etudes de Conflit et Sécurité Humaine at 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 at New York University.

Before that, I have put together an award-winning PhD and served as an armed groups expert in the UN Group of Experts on the Democratic Republic of the Congo (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), the International Conference on the Great Lakes region (ICGLR) and as lecturer at University of Cologne’s Institute for African Studies and Université Simon Kimbangu of Bukavu.

Together with friends, 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, and I regularly write and comment on current affairs in outlets such as Foreign Policy, Washington Post, Guardian, Al Jazeera, Africa is a Country, Jeune Afrique, Financial Times, New York Times, BBC, Reuters, RFI and others.
