I am a Ghanaian immunologist with a broad interest in investigating immune function among African populations in order to better address immunopathology associated with infectious and non-infectious diseases among these populations. My post-doctoral research projects (most recently at the Francis Crick Institute) have focused on understanding the immunological mechanisms by which naturally acquired immunity to Malaria is acquired and maintained. I am passionate about developing sustainable research infrastructure and human capacity on the continent- especially leveraging African expertise in the diaspora to strengthen local academic institutions. In line with this, I have recently joined the West African Centre for Cell Biology of Infectious Pathogens (WACCBIP) at the University of Ghana.
