I was born in Kerang, Nigeria, a nice small town located about 54 miles from Jos. In 2007, I obtained my BSc from University of Jos. I later joined the University of Johannesburg in South Africa for my Master’s and PhD. In 2016, I left South Africa for Harvard University where I completed a Harvard University postdoctoral fellowship in collaboration with Charles Davis and Don Pfister, on new uses of herbarium specimens for ecology and evolutionary biology. I lead a collaborative research program in the field of biodiversity research and conservation science with particular expertise in phylogenetics, genomics, and niche modeling of plants (kingdom Plantae).
