I am an integrative geographer with a profound interest in the human and physical dimensions of spatial phenomena. My research broadly focuses on Climate Change and Agriculture. I am currently pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) in Geography, Environment and Population in the University of Adelaide, Australia, researching on the linkages between climate change, indigenous knowledge and food security in semi-arid northern Ghana of West Africa.
