I am a Humboldt Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg and a Visiting Professor at the Central European University in Vienna. I teach and research comparative constitutional law, human rights, and international law and development in Africa using interdisciplinary approaches and materials.
Previously, I have been a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Göttingen and a Visiting Scholar at the Columbia Law School, the Center for Socio-Legal Studies of the University of Oxford, and the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity. I have also been a Global Teaching Fellow at the University of Yangon (Myanmar) and a Lecturer at Jigjiga University Law School (Ethiopia).
I received several awards and fellowships from different institutions such as the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Open Society Foundation, Central European University, Melbourne Law School, McGill Law School, and the Institute of Global Law and Policy at the Harvard Law School. I earned an S.J.D./Ph.D in Comparative Constitutional Law (summa cum laude) from the Central European University in 2019.
