Academic interests

Thematic: development, sustainability, electricity, morality, post-conflict settings

Regional: East Africa, northern Uganda

PhD Project: My research deals with the social impact of new grid access in rural areas in northern Uganda. I look at how electricity is introduced and how it comes to influence everyday practices and social organization. More specifically, I am concerned with how electricity contributes to reaching ideals of ‘the good life’.
