About Me

 I studied Mathematics and Statistics at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Ghana, West Africa. I moved to the United States after my Bachelors to study Applied Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, under the supervision of Bruce Wade. Following this, I spent three years as a postdoc at Hunter College of CUNY where I worked under the supervision of John Loustau and Derrick Brazill to build mathematical models of migrating cells and collect experimental data to validate my models. 

I am now an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York. My overarching research goal is to use my training in math modeling, computational math, statistics and experimental cell biology to clarify the intricate mechanisms at play in various biological systems through the development, simulation and analysis of multiscale models, and the application of machine learning methods to make sense of experimental data. 

I am happily married with two adorable kids who take most of my free time. When I am not trying to be a cool dad, I love to play tennis and write plays.
