I am a PhD candidate at MAPi joint Doctoral Program in Computer Science offered by the University of Minho, the University of Aveiro, and the University of Porto. I am also a researcher at the Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence and Decision Support. LIAAD-INESTEC.

My current research interest focus on Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. I am also interested in creating language resource for low-resource languages (especially Hausa). I received Master’s degree from the University of Manchester, UK, and a Batchelor’s Degree from Bayero University, Kano, Nigeria. I am also a faculty member at the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, Bayero University, Kano-Nigeria. I spend my time reading books and playing table tennis.
