My research interests lie primarily in the Great Lakes region of East Africa during the 20th century. At present, my research focuses on women's voices during the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda following the Rwandan genocide of 1994. I seek to better understand the relationship between international governing bodies, individual survivors of genocide, NGOs, and the Rwandan government in creating a set of norms for international legal frameworks in future trials and courts.
