I am an Urban Development Researcher currently working at the IPS research group at the Department of Spatial Planning. I am also pursuing my Doctoral studies on Urban Mobility and Justice with a focus on non-motorized transport in Nairobi.
Before joining TU Dortmund, I worked with the Development Planning Unit, UCL London, on Complex Land Markets and Spatial Justice research in Uganda and Somaliland, and earlier on I worked at the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS), Erasmus University, Rotterdam where, besides teaching and developing courses, was involved with research for the UN-Habitat State of African Cities 2018 report. I am also a board member of the TRIALOG Journal for Planning and Building in a Global Context serving as the coordinating editor.
