BA English Language, MSc Human Resource Management and presently pursuing PhD in Women Studies.

After my first degree, I taught English Language for six years before going for my Masters in HR, after which I worked as a HR consultant. I am presently an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management CIPD. I am currently carrying out my research in the Centre for Women’s Studies, University of York.



My research focuses on the Immigration and the Employment Experiences of Professional Nigerian Women in the UK.

I explore how and why women migrate, the impact of immigration policies on their professional development and their present state in today’s geo-political atmosphere.
