I am a PhD Researcher in the ERC funded Global Data Justice Project within TILT. My research interests are in fintech, digital identity and biometric platforms. My research aims are to understand: use of algorithms as decision making tools in the fintech space, regulation of the fintech and digital identity & biometric data markets, power asymmetries these markets create, and what amounts to equitable use of data and technologies for economic growth and human development. My research focuses on Kenya which is also home for me, as a case study, and data governance globally.
Prior to joining TILT, I worked as a development policy Consultant for the Government of The Bahamas, in the Office of The Prime Minister. Prior to that, I practised commercial and corporate law in law firms in Nassau and was a lecturer in Poverty law and International law at The University of the Bahamas/University of the West Indies law.
