I am a lecturer in media and cultural studies in the School of Media, Film and Music at the University of Sussex. Before this I was a fellow in the department of methodology at the London School of Economics.

My research interests are in gender and feminism in Africa; transnational feminist cultural studies; feminist theory; and qualitative, feminist and poststructuralist methodologies; and my empirical focus is on contemporary African contexts, subjects and cultures.

I received my PhD in gender and cultural studies in 2015 from the department of Culture, Media and Creative Industries at King’s College London. I have a master’s in gender studies from the African Gender Institute at the University of Cape Town, and a bachelor’s degree in social studies from Harvard University.


Before academia, I worked in publishing in Nigeria, for Kachifo Limited, publisher of Farafina books, where I authored a children’s book, Beem Explores Africa, and co-authored two primary school textbook series.
