I’m currently a first-year PhD student in the School of Law at the University of Leeds. Before starting my PhD, I completed both my LLB and LLM (International Corporate Law) at the University of Leeds in 2018 and 2019 respectively. I also completed the Legal Practice Course and MSc in Law, Business and Management at the University of Law, Manchester in 2020 and I have recently concluded the Nigerian Bar Exams to qualify as a lawyer in Nigeria.
My research is broadly focused on the interrelation between anti-money laundering (AML) frameworks and cryptocurrency regulations in Nigeria while investigating the challenges and effectiveness of the legal, regulatory and institutional framework for the enforcement of AML regulations in Nigeria from a 21st-century lens with regard to cryptocurrencies, fintech, and cyber economic crimes.
