I am a senior lecturer with the School of Civil Engineering and Surveying, University of Portsmouth. My areas of interest are in computer information systems, automation in construction, construction software development for mobile devices, standalone desktop computers and also web-based application, Building Information Modelling (BIM), data exchange and interoperability between construction applications, estimating and scheduling, application of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) in the Architectural, Engineering and Construction industry.

I have worked for construction and consulting companies in Ghana and in the USA in various areas such as quantity surveying, estimating, CAD, planning and scheduling, project management and construction software development. One of my notable projects in Ghana is the $400 million Takoradi Thermal Power Project (Phase 1) where I worked as a QS. I have developed several IT solutions including custom web-based, standalone and mobile construction applications for construction companies in the USA.

Prior to joining University of Portsmouth, I was an Assistant Professor at Texas A&M University (Department of Construction Science) where I taught both undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
