She holds a BSc degree in Agriculture from the University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, a Master of Science degree and a Ph.D. in Horticulture from Cornell University, USA. Her research interests are in the selection, evaluation, and propagation of economically important plants that are either difficult-to-propagate or at risk of extinction (several trees, medicinal plant, and vegetable species fall within this category), as well as the development of improved technologies to ensure their successful establishment. Her research also involves identifying neglected and underutilized crop species with the potential to address climate change-related problems and food security challenges in Ghana.
