Enock holds a PhD degree in Chemistry from University of Ghana where he works as a lecturer. He has keen interest in crop production and environmental safety. His research is aimed at developing an understanding of how key chemical processes may help contribute to agriculture productivity, environmental sustainability and food safety.

Research Interests and societal interests

  • Understanding the behaviour of pesticides and other xenobiotics in the environment.
  • Application of technology to improve agriculture productivity
  • Understanding of climate change impacts on environmental processes and nutrient utility in plants
  • The role of climate change in plant-pest dynamics and the chemical processes in this relationship.

Expectations as a QES Scholar during the Mobility Period

  • I expect this programme to help equip me with increased capacity and skills needed in my research and to help transform my community
  • I also hope to benefit from the expertise and experience of high calibre experts and top-notch scientists in various fields of science
  • I hope to build on and sustain my network of scientists and persons with similar interests
  • I expect the increased capacity to help significantly improve my scientific output and contribution to society

The QES Project and Advancement of your Career

My long-term goal is to contribute to environmental safety and agriculture productivity in Ghana and elsewhere through research. The QES project offers me a good platform in achieving this goal through access to and the development of technology which is aimed at ensuring food safety, as well as the understanding of greenhouse gas emission from agriculture. Moreover, the project has exposed me to new ideas, opportunities and a network of scientist essential for achieving my long-term goal.
