Presently, she is the Development Director & Mentorship Project Manager of the African Energy and Mineral Management Initiative (AEMI) – a non-profit organization situate in Uganda.

Chioma has published some articles, including, a paper on Renewable Energy Deployment in Nigeria published on the AEMI website, and a co-authored an article bordering on the economics, policy and regulation of Carbon Capture and Storage technology development in Australia. This article was published in June 2022 in Volume 20 Issue 4 of the Oil, Gas and Energy Law (OGEL), an internationally reputed energy law journal, as part of its “Special Issue on Carbon Neutral Energy”. Her interests include, energy justice, energy communities, carbon capture and storage and artisanal mining.
