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.
