My expertise are in the areas of  medical entomology, parasitology and molecular biology. Applying these expertise my research interest involves exploring blackfly vector dynamics  and transmission patterns of onchocerciasis and other  Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs)  to support the control of onchocerciasis and other NTDs and also determine the  feasibility of onchocerciasis elimination in Ghana. Other research interest include  the development of molecular diagnostic tools and genetic markers to determine the  parasitological responses to antihelminthics and to understand the  mechanisms  of drug resistance.
