As a Development Studies scholar, I consider myself as an interdisciplinary researcher, given that the field amalgamates several disciplines. I am particularly keen on searching for worldviews that can change both the development narrative and migration mantra within the framework of the Global South. The general logic is to develop a discourse that departs from the “dogmatic” views that more or less seem rigidly applicable within the Global North. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of Cape Coast, Ghana, an MSc degree in Development Studies from London South Bank University, UK and a PhD in Development Studies at the University of Lisbon, IGOT, Portugal.
Self-enthused to achieve better results within a working environment and find delight in generating innovative ideas through research. I have In-depth academic knowledge in Development Studies and a particular strength in research methods, economic development, economic geography, project management, political economy analysis, development policies and theories, education, and most social sciences courses at large.
