I studied Hausa for my BA degree at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, graduating in 1990. I received my MA in Linguistics (SOAS) in 1992, and my PhD in Linguistics (SOAS) in 1997. I taught in the Linguistics Department at Queen Mary, University of London from 1997-8, and have held a post in Linguistics and English Language at Sussex since 1998. I was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2008, and to Reader in 2017. I was also very proud to win Sussex Teaching Awards in 2012 and in 2018, and to be shortlisted for the THE Awards 2019 in the category 'Outstanding Research Supervisor of the Year'.
