Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

My current research deals with how the necessity of the inhabitants to satisfy basic needs in the domains of residence, water, energy, and sanitation at the precarious fringes of Windhoek, Namibia’s capital involves relations among the residents, with various authorities, and between off-the-grid and networked infrastructures, and how this contributes to the formation of city space, everyday governance, and urban politics. Previously, I have done research on claims and responses related to land, housing and basic services, and their institutional consequences in Namibia and Botswana. I did my PhD on Namibian ex-combatant and veteran politics.
