I am completing my dissertation based on 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 digital media technologies for campaigning, and how the technologies impact campaigns' relationships with voters. More broadly, my interests include social network analysis, effects of digital media on political polarization, user research, and technology and public policy. Other things that might be of interest but not on this page: publications, research, and coursework.
