I am a Lecturer in the department of Languages as well as a PhD candidate.I am currently writing my thesis which centers around exploring the stylistic features that are inherent in the Facebook and Twitter messages of six Nigerian Pentecostal churches: Living Faith Church, the Redeemed Christian Church, Dunamis, Mountain of Fire Ministries, Deeper Christian Life Ministries and Christ Embassy. 

My major area of interest comprises fields within applied linguistics, with special interest in Stylistics, Discourse Analysis and Nigerian English. My goal is to build my career around language use in online religion and religion online. This is motivated by the influx of religious (esp. Pentecostalism) activities and practices online and it's attendant role as a microcosm for studying internet behaviour.
