Research Fields I have studied political history, ethnic relationships and gender in Ethiopia and Eritrea. My studies focus on the Tigrai people who live in both Ethiopia and Eritrea. I have conducted historical research on the relationship between the central government and ethnic groups in Ethiopia and that of Ethiopia and Eritrea. In Tigrai State, I have implemented my research on the People’s Liberation Front and female soldiers, women’s liberation policies, and activities of NGOs for women in the post-war era. My interest in research has focused on female soldiers, conflicts and gender in Africa.
