Key Research Interests and Expertise

Social development; Christianity; state; politics; rural development; Southern Africa; Malawi.

My research uses ethnography to explore rural development and change in Southern Africa. I am particularly interested in how institutions such as chieftiancy, family, and the church intersect with states and markets to shape development and change at the local level. Most of my research is based on long-term fiedlwork in rural Malawi.
