I am a Ph.D. student in Global Christianity and Inter-religious Relations since 2012. My research is an ethnographic study of a prophetic and charismatic church in Mbeya, Southern Tanzania. I am interested especially in authority and power, and healing practices in this church and how gender plays role in understanding illness, well-being and healing.

I was trained as a systematic theologian and I got my M.Th. from University of Helsinki. During my undergraduate studies I was privileged to study two semesters in Makumira University in Tanzania which further shaped my interests towards African theology, questions of gender and hybridity of worldviews. I wrote my master’s thesis on Musa Dube’s postcolonial and feminist hermeneutics of the Bible. Currently I work theologically with ethnography which I find as a relevant and necessary tool for promoting more diverse epistemologies in theological research.
