I am an anthropologist of religion.
Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the department of History, Classics & Archaeology at Birkbeck, University of London. I worked on the Wellcome Trust funded project, Hidden Persuaders. which explored cultural fears and perceptions of ‘brainwashing’ and mind-control.
My research focuses on contemporary debates in religion, particularly in relation to gender, sexuality and health.
I completed my doctorate at the University of Oxford in 2020, which was based on research into Nigerian Pentecostalism. My thesis was titled, ‘Sex and the Spirit: Embodiment and Sexual Difference in a Global Deliverance Movement’, and forms the basis of a forthcoming book (Oxford University Press).
