I am a feminist scholar who is interested in African urban futures and black futurity. I do urban ethnography work concerning issues of gender, spirituality, spatial exclusions and financial inclusion. I also have a research focus on popular culture, both on the continent and in the diaspora, that explores the issues of subjectivity and belonging and the use of Afrofuturism and Afropolitan Imagineering in geographic projects that address the politics of difference.
