Frederick Owusu-Nimo is a Civil Engineer and Senior Lecturer at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. He has over 10 years of experience in geotechnical, geo-environmental, and geophysical engineering. He has been involved in developing relationships between geotechnical properties and geophysical parameters of soils to aid in the use of geophysics in engineering and environmental investigations. He has also participated in characterizing illegal mining (Galamsey) sites and operations in selected districts in Ghana. Dr. Owusu-Nimo has also been involved in studies related to the geotechnical properties and characteristics of landfill waste and liner materials. He is interested in the characterization of lateritic soils and earth materials and has been involved in several studies where the properties of lateritic soils / earth materials have been investigated under varying states and conditions. Most of his time is dedicated to the application of geophysical techniques in solving societal problems related to engineering and environment.
