I am a lecturer in sociology at the Gombe State University in North-eastern Nigeria. I gained my PhD in sociological studies from the University of Sheffield, United kingdom. Although originally trained in sociology, my research interests are interdisciplinary and broadly include nature and society interactions, science and technology in society and forced migration resulting from violent conflicts and environmental change. My current research adopts a multidisciplinary approach and mixed methods to investigate the wide range of relationships between religion and the environment in Northern Nigeria. I am also doing research in areas such as public attitudes towards electronic wastes, the social consequences of large-scale displacement resulting from violent conflicts and resource depletion in West Africa, and institutional responses to internal displacement in the region.
