Affiliate, Weatherhead Research Cluster on Comparative Inequality and Inclusion (2020-2021).

Research interests: Intersections of conflict and political violence, race, gender and inequality, peace building and African politics.

Zoe's current book project examines the internal dynamics of rebellion in Sierra Leone to understand how and why rebel groups can sustain a viable threat to the state without widespread support. It draws on nearly a decade of fieldwork, several hundred interviews with former combatants and community members, and private archives from members of the Revolutionary United Front. She is also leading a separate project that examines how wartime experiences shape individual wellbeing and community reintegration after war.
