Research Summary

My research focuses on coastal East Africa's interactions with social and economic networks of the Indian Ocean since the first millennium. My current project looks at the Swahili coast and western Indian Ocean from the perspective of small-scale societies that lived along the rural fringes of the port city of Mombasa.
