Her past work has focused on democratic transition and consolidation in multi-ethnic states. She has lived and worked in southern Africa, has consulted with NGOs such as the National Society for Human Rights in Namibia. Recently, she has turned her research interests towards the politics of land redistribution and privatization in neopatrimonial, quasi-democratic states, with the goal of understanding the continuing issues of scarcity and corruption.
