I am a Teaching Assistant in the Industrial Economics department of Nottingham University Business School. I have a Bachelors degree in Economics (BSc) from Bayero University Kano, Nigeria. In 2012 I obtained a Masters degree in Economics and Finance (MSc.) from the University of Leeds. I received the Leeds University Business School Scholarship for a PhD in Economics, which I completed in 2016. During my PhD, I assisted in teaching economics courses to undergraduate students at Leeds University Business School. Following completion of my doctorate degree, I worked as a research assistant, also at the University of Leeds.

My research interests are in applied econometrics, international macroeconomics, energy economics, financialization and the economics of innovation.
