She is currently working with 100 Histories of 100 Worlds in 1 Object along with Yinka Shonibare Foundation, where she is cataloguing a library collection of African art and anthropology for their project space in Lagos, Nigeria. Her research interests include cultural memory, affect, and embodiment, with a focus on African material culture held in ethnographic museums.

She has given talks and supported conferences in various locations, including Iniva, Paris Peace Forum, Northampton University, British Institute in Eastern Africa and National Maritime Museum. She was Assistant Curator for Timespan Museum’s exhibition No Colour Bar: Highland Remix: Clearances to Colonialism and has studied at University of Oxford, and Goldsmiths, University of London.
