I recently concluded dissertation fieldwork on the presidential election in Ghana, with a focus on the two main candidates' campaign organizations. As a scholar, I am curious about why and how political organizations adopt and adapt technology for campaigning, and how the technologies impact their relationship with voters.
More broadly, my interests include social network analysis, effects of digital media on political polarization, user research, and technology and public policy.
