Personal profile


I specialise in the fields of conflict management and disaster risk management, with a particular focus on food system resilience and food and nutrition security in protracted crises, specifically in the Horn of Africa. I possess a Master's degree in Peace and Conflict Management from the University of Haifa, and a Bachelor's degree in International Development Management from Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences, with a major in Disaster Risk Management and a minor in Geohazards and Climate Change from Western Norway University of Applied Sciences. I have gained experience and knowledge working and studying in various countries including Somalia, South Sudan, Israel, Myanmar, the Philippines, the Netherlands, Germany and Norway.

In addition to my association with Tilburg University, I am presently linked with ZOA-Dorcas, a Dutch humanitarian organization. I work and live in Juba, South Sudan.

Research interests

I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. focused on examining the influence of humanitarian aid in protracted crisis environments and its implications on conflict dynamics. My research interests encompass a range of topics, including the transition from humanitarian assistance to long-term development and resilience-building efforts. Furthermore, I am deeply engaged in the fields of conflict management, disaster risk reduction, as well as the interrelated domains of food and nutrition security and sustainable food systems.

I am registered at the Graduate School of Humanities and Digital Sciences (TSHD) in collaboration with the Zero Hunger Lab of Tilburg School of Economics and Management (TiSEM)
