I joined Dundee Law School in January 2011. I hold degrees from the University of Edinburgh (PhD), the University of Warwick (LLM in Law in Development) and the University of Jos-Nigeria (LLB).  I am also a qualified – but non-practising – Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.


My research covers the theoretical study of law from the critical perspectives of other disciplines, such as sociology, politics and philosophy. Following on from this approach, my research looks at the relationship between law and development, the interface between human rights and development, community and participatory approaches to development and moral-philosophical approaches to poverty and development. Finally, my research considers the interface between law, human rights and development and also the relationship between human rights and global justice from critical and moral-philosophical perspectives.  I have published on various aspects of these topics, including a monograph Human Rights from Community published by the Edinburgh University Press in 2013, in their Global Justice and Human Rights book series.

I am currently a recipient of an Early Career Fellowship (2015-16) from the Independent Social Research Foundation (ISRF) to work on a monograph that aims to develop an African legal theory of disability justice.
