I am an Early Career Academic at the college of Health, Psychology, and Social Care. My role includes 30%  teaching and 70% research. In terms of teaching, I am part of Academics who teach on the health research methods module at the College and also function as a guest lecturer on other modules. Before joining the University, I worked as a Research Fellow at the University of Southampton. I hold a PhD in Health Studies from the University of Nottingham, UK.  My commitment in the field of disability and rehabilitation won me the prestigious and enviable University of Nottingham’s Vice chancellor’s scholarship which funded my PhD study. I did both my master’s and bachelor’s degrees at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), a top University in Ghana and West Africa. At the master’s level, I pursued MSc. Disability, Rehabilitation and Development where I majored in healthcare, assessment and rehabilitation of persons living with disabilities. My bachelor’s degree was in BSc.
