Anozie’s scholarship lies at the intersection of energy, natural resources law, and international economic law. Specifically, he addresses the impact of energy laws, regulations, and policies on energy development in various jurisdictions – focusing on Black and Brown communities – and the extraterritorial nature of U.S. energy policies and how countries react to such policies. Anozie's scholarship also addresses energy and environmental justice issues, focusing on harm remediation in poor migrant, Native American, and low-income communities
