I am currently completing my PhD studies at the Department of Geography. My research is focused on evolution of ideas about conservation, climate change and natural resource development, how they are translated into specific interventions in different geographical contexts and the politics of what happens when they are implemented in specific project sites. Specifically, I am examining the evolution, translation and politics of the idea of Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+), which is a prominent climate change policy in the context of Ghana. West Africa. I am alumni of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana and also studied at the University of Leeds, UK as a Commonwealth Scholar. Previously, I worked as the Research and Policy Manager and also as a Health Policy Manager for Oxfam in Ghana.
