My research interest includes climate change, biodiversity, forest ecology, GIS and remote sensing. I studied Natural Resources Management for my undergraduate and started my research career after graduation. Currently, I am a Principal Technologist attached to the CSIR – Forestry Research Institute of Ghana. My experience in forestry and forest-related research has provided me with several opportunities to work with both local and visiting researchers on different subjects of interest. In the long run, my research aspiration is to improve on the understanding of the structure, dynamics and how tropical forest ecosystems function, and thereby influence policies impacting on them.
My recent qualification and experience in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing has also exposed me to spatial technologies relevant in forest-related research. Remote Sensing and GIS offer the opportunity to obtain environmental data over larges areas. I am particularly interested in ways that remote sensing technologies such as infrared thermography could be utilized in obtaining information of forest canopies in the face of climate change.
