I have been focussing my research on peacebuilding anthropology, social media and digital governmentality. My current research focus is on digital communication topics, e.g. development blogging, the use of Twitter in international policy arenas and critical research on the ‘open data’ discourse. Last but not least, I am working on research that critically examines discourses around social entrepreneurism in development, including debates on 'DIY aid', volunteering/voluntourism and the changing nature of development studies teaching. I am blogging regularly Aidnography. Pre-prints of publications as well as further information can be found on my profile
