Adam Branch

In September, 2015 I will be joining the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Cambridge as University Lecturer in African Politics.

From 2011-2014, I was Senior Research Fellow at the Makerere Institute of Social Research in Kampala, Uganda. From 2013-2015, I was associate professor of political science at San Diego State University. I am author of two books: Displacing Human Rights: War and Intervention in Northern Uganda (Oxford University Press, 2011), and Africa Uprising: Popular Protest and Political Change (co-written with Zachariah Mampilly; Zed Books, 2015).

I earned a Ph.D. in Political Science from Columbia University in 2007 and a B.A. in Social Studies from Harvard University in 1998.
