About Me

I'm a passionate researcher and advocate originally from Nigeria, but I grew up in Staten Island, New York. In 2018, I proudly graduated with honors from CUNY Brooklyn College, where I earned a BA in Psychology and Sociology. 

Before joining the department, I gained valuable experience as a Legal Assistant at the esteemed NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF). In this role, I provided invaluable support to attorneys engaged in civil rights and racial justice cases. Furthermore, I had the privilege of working as a Research Assistant at the Thurgood Marshall Institute, an interdisciplinary think tank housed within LDF. 

I am honored to be recognized as both a Mellon Mays Fellow, Race, Law, and History Fellow, Gupta Values Scholar, and Rackham Merit Fellow, acknowledgments that highlight my dedication to scholarly excellence and my unwavering commitment to advancing knowledge in my field.

My work is supported by the National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID) at the University of Michigan and the University of Michigan Law School.

Through my work and advocacy, I strive to make a meaningful impact in unraveling the complexities of racial identity, social stratification, and immigration. Join me on this transformative journey as we challenge existing paradigms, promote inclusivity, and work towards a more equitable society for all.
