About me

Thesis: 'Information and Electoral Accountability in Sub-Saharan Africa'

I’m interested in how voters use information about politics to hold governments to account. In my thesis, I will explore the political effects of media shocks in Sub-Saharan Africa, focusing on recent growth in mobile and internet phone use.
