WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE.
I am Research Director at the University of Johannesburg Centre for Africa-China Studies (CACS) and a Senior Lecturer on technology dynamics, international law, and Africa-China relations in the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Johannesburg (UJ).
Currently, my work is extensively focused on (1) the relationships between African countries and the People’s Republic of China compared to Taiwan since the late 1990s (2) emerging technologies and international relations, and (3) quantitative analysis of the international political economy of interstate war in late 20th century East Africa. In all these areas I apply rational choice theory through the lens of opportunity cost.
I’ve also done research on BRICS and stock market integration. Here’s a TV interview where I talk about that:
