She specializes in architectural and urban planning in postcolonial African states. Before joining Northwestern University, she was a fellow at the Princeton-Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism and the Humanities, and participated in the European Research Council project “Apartheid: The Global Itinerary” at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
