Working, thinking, writing and exchanging ideas on development

Knowledge. Analysis. Policy


I am a development professional based in Washington D.C.

My broad expertise is on the political economy of natural resources management, power sector reforms, institutions and economic development in Africa. I also work on analysing China-Africa economic relations.

This blog used to be a platform for a whole range of things on policy – commentary, analysis and collaborations. Now it is a space to share information and ideas with like minds on the political economy of development.
