Dr. Philip Antwi-Agyei is a Senior Lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana, and a Visiting Research Fellow at the Regional Institute for Population Studies, University of Ghana, under the Climate Impact Research Capacity and Leadership Enhancement in sub-Saharan Africa (CIRCLE) programme by the Africa Academy of Sciences. Philip is a Commonwealth Scholar, who obtained his PhD in Earth and Environment from the University of Leeds, United Kingdom in July, 2013. He also holds MSc degree from the University of Hull, United Kingdom and a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Leicester, also in the United Kingdom. After his PhD, Dr. Antwi-Agyei worked as a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Sustainability Research Institute at the University of Leeds, United Kingdom, where he explored barriers to climate change adaptations in sub-Saharan Africa.
Dr. Antwi-Agyei is an interdisciplinary environmental change scientist, whose research output has been published in leading international journals including Applied Geography, Land Use Policy, Regional Environmental Change, Climate and Development, and Environment, Development & Sustainability). His research involves developing innovative multi-scale approaches for assessing vulnerability and adaptations to climate change and variability for dryland farming systems. Philip’s work uses spatial databases and field-based participatory studies within the broader understanding of how climate change and variability affect food security and rural livelihoods with a developing country perspective.
