Chemistry has been part of me ever since I started learning science as a high school student. I cherish the subject so must and passionately study it. I have come far in chemistry and still researching more into it.

I majored in Organic Chemistry, ie Organic Synthesis at the PhD level. I also do a lot into Natural Product ie plant medicine.

Presently I lecture at the Univeristy of Cape Coast, Department of Chemisty.

My specific interest in the IYC 2011 is to creat awareness to the public about how useful chemistry is and what it has done to humanity. Also encourage the interest of young people in chemistry.
