He has collaborated with ANO, the research platform founded by Nana Oforiatta Aiym, and has worked closely with Cameroonian-born curator Koyo Kouoh as an associate researcher. His interests include the critical legacy of African modernism, as well as new radical cultural practices and urban developments in sub-Saharan Africa.
