    Current Research:

    His current research on Sufi Islam in West Africa concerns the functions of Sufi oral narratives in the practice of Islam in West Africa, with a concentration in Wolof Sufi oral narratives from Senegal. He looks at the function of these texts in the socialization of the disciple and his or her relationship with the shaykh.

    His current research in the area of Applied Linguistics and Language Pedagogy concerns the issue of pedagogical norm in African language teaching. Considering the growing interest in learning and teaching an African language in the United States, and drawing upon a student-centered approach, his research investigates the ways in which a pedagogical norm could facilitate the learning process and minimize the level of complexity of African language teaching and learning.
