Personal profile


I am a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in English Literature, with my research project entitled ‘Delinquent Bodies: Blackness and Racial Capitalism in Afrodiasporic Literature’. I earned my PhD in Postcolonial African Literature and Culture from the University of Bristol in 2023 under a fully funded cotutelle supervision arrangement with Macquarie University.

My thesis is currently being revised into a monograph titled African Hustler Narratives: E-fraud Economy in Postcolonial Nigerian Literature, as well as adapted into a documentary film – African Robinhood: The Making of a Prodigal Scammer.

I have taught literature courses in Nigeria, England, and Australia, including Godfrey Okoye University, University of Nigeria, Bournemouth University, University of Bristol, and Macquarie University. Prior to joining Northumbria, I have worked as a language editor for the Oxford English Dictionaries in Germany, and completed a research visit at Carleton University, Canada funded by the Mitacs Globalink Research Awards.
