I joined the African Studies Centre in 2017. I am a political scientist and anthropologist. I studied at the University of Lagos and the University of Ibadan (both in Nigeria) and the University of Cambridge (UK) - the latter as a Bill and Melinda Gates Scholar. I have taught at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria, and University of California-Davis, USA and was Visiting Professor at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa (2014-2017).
I was a co-editor of Journal of Contemporary African Studies (2010-2016) and co-editor of AFRICA: Journal of the International Africa Institute (2015-2020).
