Biography

Ali earned his bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communication from the University of Buea, and his master’s degree in international journalism (focusing on global poverty and inequality) from Michigan State University; as MasterCard Foundation Scholar. His thesis analyzed the impacts of governmental controls of information on journalism practice in Cameroon.

At Penn State, his research explores the intersection between media, conflict and humanitarian crisis — focusing on journalistic roles of local (as opposed to foreign) journalists in conflict zones and humanitarian crisis, in restrictive press evironments. In his free time, he listens to, and sings acapella and country music.

Fun fact: His name (Pechulano) means: “I don’t care what people say, let them talk.”
