I have been working in the anti-corruption field since 2009, beginning in Transparency International's Defence and Security team. I subsequently worked in business risk consultancies, advising diverse businesses and organisations on corruption and money laundering risks in Sub-Saharan Africa. Prior to starting my research work, I worked at CDC Group, the UK development finance institute, supporting businesses and financial institutions in emerging markets with anti-corruption and anti-money laundering programmes.
Alongside my research, I am an expert contributor to the Transparency International Helpdesk and undertake assignments relevant to my research for business and international development consultancies.

Comparing three Nigerian states, my thesis explores how the quality of sub-national governance influences the effects and intended goals of anti-corruption mechanisms. It seeks to deepen analysis of corruption by examining localised issues, considering what anti-corruption policy responses are feasible in more defined settings.
My wider specialisms and research interests relate to my professional background and include business integrity, anti-money laundering and extractive industry governance, generally but not exclusively in Sub-Saharan Africa.
