PhD in communications from Howard University; MSA from Northwestern University, Evanston, Ill.; and BA in mass communications from the University of Nigeria in Nsukka, Nigeria. Joined Howard University’s Department of Communication and Culture in 2009. Was previously a faculty member and chair of the communications department at Bowie State University.
My research focus is on international telecommunications policy with specific interest in Nigeria and other nations of Africa. That work has involved estimating critical mass of service, regulatory issues, and issues of market liberalization. I have published peer-reviewed communication policy articles in professional journals including Telecommunication Policy, Info, Howard Journal of Communication, Africa Media Review, and books and book chapters on the subject. Additionally, I served as vice president for Digital Bridge Institute (DBI), Abuja-Nigeria, which produces several of the country’s telecommunications practitioners.
