Currently based in Lawrence, I am an Assistant Professor of African digital humanities at the University of Kansas where I teach courses on social media, and African cultural studies. My research focuses on digital literary studies, and the performative circulations of popular culture on digital media. My monograph, Cultural Netizenship is out this Spring from Indiana University Press.

I enjoy experimenting with new recipes and writing poetry. My first collection Where the Baedeker Leads chronicles my experiences living in Lagos and Saskatoon. Please visit Alllitup to read two poems from the collection. You may also like my co-edited anthology of poems on the 2020 #EndSARS movement in Nigeria. Please do consider ordering copies of these works here and here. Thank you.
