He received his PhD at the University of Newcastle, United Kingdom, in 2008. He is Associate Professor at the Department of Marine and Fisheries Sciences, University of Ghana since 2015. His research and professional activities are mainly concerned with coastal erosion dynamics modelling and management, delta systems modelling, subsidence in delta regions, sea level rise impact assessment in coastal and delta regions, and coastal vulnerability and risk assessment to sea level change. A main research project is related to detecting, measuring and predicting the rate of subsidence in the Volta delta (Ghana). He is the author and co-author of several publications in international journals and conference proceedings.
