Primarily, my research revolves around a sociological approach to the relation between the military as an institution and the society in which it is situated, known as the civil-military relations (CMR). Geographically I concentrate on Africa. In that perspective so far, I have written about military in politics in Kenya, foreign military assistance and democracy in Kenya, stabilization operations in Mali and soldiers rights inside the barracks in Mali.
