Major Projects:
  • His current work sits at the intersection of cultural studies, spatial theory, urbanism, and religious studies.
  • His dissertation City on Edge: Constructing Efficacious Pentecostal Sites in Lagos examined the explosive growth of Pentecostal Christianity in the Nigerian city of Lagos. In particular, based on ethnographic research conducted at three immense Pentecostals sites in and around Lagos, it examined how performative and discursive practices are deployed by Pentecostals to create a perception of efficacy around their sites. This work posits a relationship between the spatial practices of the city and the ritual practices of the Pentecostal space.
