Jacob is a Visiting International Scholar in the International Studies program at Dickinson College, US. Before Dickinson, he worked at the American University of Nigeria as Chair of the Communications and Multimedia Design Program. He holds a PhD in Communication Studies from the University of Leeds and MA in Peace Studies from Lancaster University, UK. Jacob’s new book with Dr. Margee Ensign, ‘Transactional Radio Instruction: Improving Educational Outcomes for Children in Conflict Zones’ (Palgrave Macmillan, 2020), describes lessons from a USAID-funded education-in-emergencies intervention which they both led in Boko Haram-ravaged northeast Nigeria. The project was nominated by Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Education for the UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize for the Use of ICT in Education.
