Research Area: Hydrological modeling
Time Frame: April 2014 – October 2014
Emmanuel is a Research Scientist at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR)-Soil Research Institute, Kumasi, Ghana. He holds a Msc in Soil Science from Ghent University, Belgium. His current research focuses on agricultural water management in smallholder farming systems in Northern Ghana using the water balance model BANDIT.
Management (AWM) researchers, and benefit from their rich and established competence has always been my dream as a young scientist. I was, therefore, motivated to apply for this program organized by IWMI to build my capacity in AWM and acquire an in-depth knowledge of AWM interventions, and to bridge the inter-generational gap between the old research scientists and the young ones.
As a young scientist, what motivates me to do my research is working effectively to get the desired output and filling the knowledge gap, with a view of increasing food security and improving the livelihood resilience of rural farmers.
