Biography

My doctoral research focuses on the history of automobile cars in colonial Nigeria. It uses multiple perspectives—from technology, urbanization, and modernity to gender, race, and class—to engage how people of colonial Nigeria made and remade cars into a gamut of their encounter with imperial modernity.
