I obtained my first degree in Construction Technology and Management at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Ghana. I graduated with a First Class (Honours) and was adjudged the best student in the Department of Building Technology. Subsequently, I received the vice-chancellor’s award of excellence as the best student of the Faculty of Architecture and Building Technology (2011-2012). After fulfilling the one-year mandatory national service to the nation, I pursued an MPhil in Building Technology at KNUST. To enhance my industrial expertise, I worked as a quantity surveyor with a construction company and a consultancy firm after my MPhil degree. I applied for a scholarship for further studies and was awarded the most prestigious and competitive Hong Kong PhD Fellowship at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) where I am currently conducting my PhD study on sustainable housing. While conducting my study at PolyU, I served as vice president of the CIB student Chapter (2019-2020). My research colleagues and I were the winners of the 2018-2019 CIB Sebestyen Future Leaders Award. Besides, with a different team, our group was the first runner up in a summer school competition on sustainable housing from the European perspective. This was organized by the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
