Current Research

My PhD thesis focuses on the Nigerian petroleum industry during the late colonial/decolonization and early postcolonial periods (c.1946-67) to explore the trilateral relationship between the joint oil venture Shell-BP, the British metropolitan government/colonial authorities, and the Nigerian nationalist movement. I am currently engaged in primary research at both The National Archives in Kew and the BP Archive at the University of Warwick.
