Has expertise in the teaching of all aspects of human anatomy to medical and allied health sciences students. Higher education spans across four universities in three different countries. Prior to joining the Department of Physician Assistantship Studies at Central University in September 2018, he has had more than a decade of teaching and research experiences from several universities in Ghana and South Africa, both on full and part-time bases. Holds a PhD degree in Clinical Anatomy & Cell Biology from the University of Cape Town Medical School, South Africa and Fellowship Certificate from the West African College of Morphologists (FWACM - Anatomy Option).

Research interests: 

  •     Neurobiology of the musculoskeletal system with focus on the structure and function of postural muscles in children with spastic type cerebral palsy.
  •     Relationship between trunk musculature and the provision of posture and pelvic stability (ultrastructural and imaging techniques of investigating trunk musculature).
  •     Human body/structure and function in relation to medical imaging.
  •     Pedagogy of teaching the human body/structure and function to healthcare professionals (anatomical and medical education). 
  •     Environmentally-friendly methods of embalming/preservation of human remains.
