Before coming to King's, Fredrick was an Irish Research Council Post-Doctoral Fellow at the School of Politics and International Relations at the University College Dublin. Prior to that, he was a Research Fellow at the Science Policy Research Unit at the University of Sussex. He studied development policy at the Open University UK, an MPhil in Development Studies at Massey University New Zealand and a BSc at Egerton University Kenya.
His ongoing research focuses on land, property rights and political violence in Kenya, and is currently developing a research area on principal-agent problems within decentralised administrative units in Kenya. His research addresses questions like how does recurrent violence affect groups settlement and their property rights? What is the property rights outcomes from previous cycles of political violence; does groups relocation because of violence produces reallocation of land rights to secure forms to match the emerging settlement patterns? and how do different ethnic groups collaborate to increase the level of accountability among political leaders in decentralised units?
