Currently, I hold the position of a Lecturer at the Faculty of Informatics. Prior to my current position, I completed my Masters in Computer Science at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at the University of Ottawa (uOttawa) under the supervision of Professors Iluju Kiringa and Herna L. Viktor . I was awarded Bachelor of Science (Hons.) degree from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi.

Earlier, I acquired research experiences where I took up a fellowship at Center for Informatics at Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE), Recife, Brazil. I was involved in a number of research projects with Faculty members and students in the areas of Spatio-temporal databases, data mining, and data warehousing, amongst others. I have attended and presented research works at a number of international conferences, seminars, workshops and demonstrations.

Moreover, I have acquired industry experience over the years, where I worked as a Software Developer at Covenant Visions Int.

GRACE KYEREWAH GOKA

I was born and grew up in the Ashanti Region of Ghana, where I also did my undergraduate degree, at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST-Kumasi). After my undergraduate, I took up a position at GTUC as an administrative officer at the Regional and Academic Partnership Unit where I learnt a lot about Institutional and Academic Programmes accreditation. My time with the Unit also helped me in deciding which area of Mathematics to further my studies, whether in pure or applied Mathematics.

I pursued my Master of Science degree in Mathematical Sciences at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS – Ghana) and my research was mostly on General Relativity, Cosmology and Inflation with a focus on the recent discovery of gravitational waves by BICEP2 (Background Imagining of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization – CMB polarization experiment at the south pole) from Inflation, where my supervisor was Navin Sivanandam.

My technical skills include active experience with iPython, Latex, Sage and Excel. Having developed strong written and oral presentation skills as a student at AIMS, I also have the ability to communicate complex mathematical and scientific concepts to a variety of audiences.

My research focuses on Special and General Theory of Relativity, Theoretical cosmology, Cosmic Inflation. My current project is on Cosmic Inflation: Multifields Inflationary Models.
