Country: United States (Massachusetts)
I am curious, passionate and a self-motivated researcher with strong interest in a range of policy and scholarly issues, from the interface of governance and security, to development in local and global affairs broadly defined. With a first degree from the University of Ilorin in Nigeria and a Masters degree from Pittsburg State University in the United States, I am currently pursuing advanced research at the University of Massachusetts in Lowell towards a doctoral degree in Global Studies.
Gender and Politics
International Law & Organization
My current research is on comparative gender dimensions of religious radicalisation and nationalism in an age of the increased "weaponization" of women in various conflicts globally. It is a multidisciplinary work that has allowed me to engage with perspectives and debate from Peace & Conflict Studies, Terrorism, Gender Studies, International Relations, Sociology, and Development Studies. Furthermore, the study has entailed an investment in quantitative and qualitative research skills.
