GIMPA’s School of Technology Hosts Carnegie African Diaspora Fellow, Professor Daniel A. Asamoah

The School of Technology (SOT) at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) is collaborating with the Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program to host Professor Daniel Asamoah from the Wright State University, USA.

Prof. Asamoah, an associate professor of information systems, will collaborate with the School of Technology on curriculum development in data analytics and business intelligence, academic research and mentorship. The collaboration will also help foster relationships between GIMPA and Wright State University.

Along with Dr Joseph Adjei, the school’s dean and host faculty member, Prof. Asamoah will hold a workshop on “Application of Data Analytics and Machine Learning (DA/ML) to Socio-Economic Issues in Africa.” The workshop will include stakeholders from academia, industry and the government who will exchange ideas on the role of data analytics and machine learning in addressing issues such as health care, agriculture, and governance.

The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship project at GIMPA is one of a selected few that pairs African Diaspora scholars in the USA and Canada with higher education institutions and collaborators in Africa to work together on curriculum co-development, collaborative research, graduate training, and mentoring activities.

The program is designed to strengthen capacity at the host institutions and develop long-term, mutually beneficial collaborations between universities in Africa and the United States and Canada.

Prof. Asamoah earned his bachelor’s degree in electrical/electronic engineering from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana. He earned his master’s in telecommunications management and his PhD in information systems from the Oklahoma State University, USA.
