About Me

Born in Accra, Ghana, I received my bachelor’s degree in Telecommunication Engineering from the reputable Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST),Ghana-West Africa, in August 2020. In KNUST, I cultivated the habit of self-studying and the ability to independently find information to solve problems. As a member of the Antenna Group KNUST, I led a team of three to design “HIGH GAIN PRINTED LOG-PERIODIC DIPOLE ANTENNA FOR 440 – 690 MHz UHF APPLICATIONS” for my final year thesis.

I am currently a master’s research student at the Intelligent Communication and Information Security (ICIS) Lab, Department of Intelligence Media Engineering at the Hanbat National University (HBNU), Daejeon-South Korea, under the supervision of Prof. Inkyu Bang and co-supervised by Prof. Taehoon Kim.

Research Interest

Although I have not fully developed my research area, I am generally interested in:

  • Wireless Network Security.
  • Random Access.
  • Information Theory.
  • Application of Deep/Machine Learning in Wireless Communication Systems
  • Optimization in Wireless Communication Systems.
  • Cellular Communication Networks (4G LTE, 5G).
  • Internet of Things (IoT).

Favourite Quotes

Over the years, I have tried to model my life on these quotes:

  • “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”- Albert Einstein
  • “If I had five minutes to chop down a tree, I’d spend the first three sharpening my axe.”-Abraham Lincoln

  • “Learn continually - there is always ‘one more thing’ to learn!” - Steve Jobs
