I am a lawyer with experience working in Nigeria, and I am a legal research consultant. I am originally from Nigeria, where I got my undergraduate degree in law at Ebonyi State University, Abakaliki (2012) and I was admitted to the Nigerian Bar as a Barrister and Solicitor in 2014. I obtained an LLM in Maritime law from Bangor University in 2017, where my central research focused on examining the differences and effectiveness of national laws in the USA, UK, and Nigeria in handling oil pollution damage from offshore drilling.
I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the school of law at Bangor University where my research examines the effectiveness of the diverse domestic law of the Arctic States and international law, to protect the Arctic from oil pollution damage from offshore drilling in the Arctic.
I am very passionate about the sea and my research interests largely centre on the relationship between law and maritime activities, more particularly on regimes for tortious liabilities from shipping and hydrocarbon development. I am also interested in energy law and oil spill prevention and response. I have always been intrigued by the delicate nature of the Polar region and the collective interest of mankind in the region. I am also passionate about the subject of Arctic development and the laws to protect the pristine state of the Arctic, and I aim to continue exploring legal topics that follow Arctic development. I am open to collaborative requests to offer my research and writing ideas and expertise on diverse legal subjects arising from hydrocarbon exploration in the Arctic.
