Academic Interest


It is my belief that in a world that man is eager to explore and exploit, ecologists of all sorts will be needed to sound the necessary caution and direct man to a more sustainable future. I studied the life sciences because of my deep-seated interest in the environment in environmental issues. The specificity and direction of my academic focus has remained, this far, broadly in the aquatic environment. I made academic pursuits in the fields’ natural resources management majoring in fisheries and watershed management in the undergraduate degree level and masters degree in sustainable water management. In September 2008 to August 2009, I participated in a collaborative research between Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and Virginia Polytechnic Institute ; sponsored by USAID/CRSP) on a research project, “Characterization of pond effluents and biological and physiological assessment of receiving waters in Ghana”. I have since September 2010 been involved in European Inland Water Quality Assessment with special focus on the European Union Water Framework Directive. The time spent in these water related studies and research has been a challenge and motivation for me. I have therefore chosen to spend a career researching in the field of aquatic ecology and management.
