Personal profile

Research Interests

I have over 5 years of academic/teaching and research experience in the tertiary education sector in the areas of muncipal solid waste management practices in the Ghanaian context, African Indigenous knowledge and resource conservation, and environmental studies/management issues in global south. In my previous engagements, I instructed undergraduate Distance Education topics in Environmental Studies, Environmental Management and Resource Perceptions, Socio-Economic Development of Ghana, Philosophy in Social Sciences, Research Methods and Materials of the Basic School Teacher and Research Methods.

My current research (PhD thesis) is at the intersection of environmental changes and human migration. I am interested in exploring the drivers and determinants of internal migration, particularly northern Ghanaian migration in the agro-ecological transitional zone of Ghana's Bono region. My research further seeks to understand the overall wellbeing impacts of this kind of migration on the migrants as well as the implications for local government policy development.
