Biography

I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Nigerian Screen Worlds, a subset of the African Screen Worlds: Decolonising Film and Screen Studies Project funded by the ERC at SOAS, University of London.

My background is in media and communication studies with a focus on Nigerian film and culture, which I have been researching since 2009 at the Pan-Atlantic University (PAU), Lagos. There, I co-convened several conferences and roundtables on Nigerian film with scholars and filmmakers on an annual basis.

In 2015, I obtained a PhD in Nigerian film from the University of Westminster, where I co-organised African film conferences for three years. My research interests include representations of the past and conflict in film, which my PhD explored, reception studies, media effects, cinema-going cultures in Nigeria and Ghana, film and social change, and the variety of screens through which audiences engage with African film. I was a recipient of the African Film Fellowship at the University of Cape Town in 2016. Thereafter, I co-edited African Film Cultures in 2017 and published the first article fully devoted to contemporary cinema-going in Lagos in 2019.
