I am a historian with a focus on West and Central Africa. My work focusses on the 'bureaucratization of the world' since the 19th Century. I published on the history of bureaucratic classifications, on the history of bureaucrats (especially policemen), and on the history of humanitarian knowledge. My current work focusses on the history of humanitarian governmentality -in which statistical knowledge plays an increasingly important role.
