Dr. Caroline Rosemyya Kwawu holds a Ph.D. degree in Computational Material Chemistry from the Department of Chemistry, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). With computer-aided experiments, she explores heterogeneous processes like surface diffusion, chemical decomposition, charge transfer processes, reaction mechanisms and polymerisation reactions at the atomic/molecular level on material surfaces. Her current research interests include understanding the mechanisms of charge mobility at interfaces and the conversion of waste into viable products e.g. fuels and chemicals. Her PhD studies entailed the computational study of transition metal surfaces for the conversion of carbon dioxide into hydrocarbon fuels, which was carried out under the Leverhulme-Royal Society Africa Award grant. Dr. Kwawu prior obtained a BSc. Chemistry degree (First Class Honours) from the Department of Chemistry, KNUST. She is passionate about teaching and material science research and currently lectures physical chemistry courses including Electro-chemistry, Chemical Kinetics and Heterogeneous Catalysis. Her goal is to provide renewable energy solutions (i.e. energy generation and storage) and environmental remediation by providing insights into chemical processes occurring in these environments.
