Current Research

My academic and consultancy research interests revolve around politics, policy, religion and development related issues.

At the moment I am involved in  the following research projects:

  1. Ten-cell house system – as an infrastructure of rural citizenship in Tanzania.

My previous research projects (and with publications) have included:

  2. Social Media and politics in Tanzania.
