I was a lecturer at St. Philip’s Theological College, Kongwa, Tanzania from 1989-2000, then at St. Paul’s United Theological College (now St. Paul’s University), Limuru, Kenya from 2000-2006, whilst there I developed an MA programme in Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations.
From 2006-2009, I was involved in Sharia Debates in Africa project an interdisciplinary research project on responses to Islamic Law in selected sub-Saharan states (Sudan, Nigeria, Kenya and Tanzania) in co-operation with the University of Bayreuth, funded by Volkswagen Foundation.
From 2008-2012, I was at the Centre for Muslim-Christian Studies, Oxford. From 2009 I have been an Honorary Research Fellow St. Stephen’s House and member of Faculty of Theology, University of Oxford.
During this time I taught MA modules on Christian-Muslim Relations and Islam in Africa at St. Paul’s University, Limuru, Kenya and Theological College of Northern Nigeria, Jos, Nigeria.
