I am a Postdoctoral Teaching Scholar in African History at North Carolina State University. I received my Ph.D. from Michigan State University in 2019. My research examines the history of Zulu amabutho (age-grades, regiments) from the time of Shaka Zulu to the present. I created a digital archive of the 2010 World Cup. I mapped the expansion of Zuluness through public displays using StoryMapsJS. I write regularly and serve as contributing editor for Africa is a Country, profiling digital Africanist projects and sharing my own research. I have also written for GradHacker and Football Is Coming Home.
