Joe is a PhD student in Westervelt’s Aerosol group. Joe received a BSc in Chemistry from the University of Ghana, and an M.S. in Computer Science Applied to Climate Change from the West African Science Service Center on Climate Change and Adapted Use program hosted in the University of Ouagadougou in partnership with the University of Wurzburg, Germany, where he graduated in the top 1% of his class. Joe is interested in aerosols, air pollution, and climate climate. He currently researches how global aerosol reductions impact climate variables in Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and the Middle East regions through the Regional Aerosol Model Intercomparison Project (RAMIP) and uses climate models like the NASA GISS ModelE and CMIP6 models. His previous research centered around using Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to estimate air pollution concentrations in West African Cities. Outside academics, Joe likes traveling and exploring big cities.
