Work and Research

I am economic historian and ethnographer of 'mobile money' in southern Africa. My research focuses on the history of entrepreneurship, small business and development of mobile-based financial innovations in Lesotho and South Africa (Diepsloot Township). I teach and supervise in the following areas: African Economic History, Entrepreneurship and Business History, and Political Economy of Development in Africa. My consultancy activities revolve around Economic Development, Financial Inclusion and Entrepreneurship in poor, low-income and rural communities in Africa.
