Dr. Dickson Adom is a researcher in the pluridisciplinary fields of Place Identity History, African Art, Art Installations, and Cultural Anthropology for Biodiversity Conservation, Environmental Sustainability, and Heritage Sites Conservation. He is a lecturer in the Department of Educational Innovations in Science and Technology, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana. He also holds an extraordinary researcher position in the School of Economic Sciences, Northwest University, South Africa. Dr. Adom holds a First Class BA, Master of Philosophy, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in African Art and Culture from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. He is an expert in the use of traditional knowledge systems and community engagement strategies in nature conservation projects in rural communities. Dr. Adom was recognised as the RUFORUM Young Scientist 2019, a covetous award for honouring young and dynamic scientists in Africa who are extremely promising for their scientific achievements. His benchmark work has been the development of an innovative traditional strategy for biodiversity conservation that engages local communities and utilizes their rich indigenous knowledge systems. His Post Doctoral research scholarship grant financed by the DAAD with funding from the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development, Germany, aims at capacity building in cultural and traditional craft enterprises among host communities in Protected Areas in Ghana to boost ecotourism development. This is a community engagement study to make community members take ownership of PA systems in their regions while supporting conservation interests. For his scholarly and academically rigorous peer review activities for top-ranked publishers and journals such as SAGE Open, Taylor and Francis (African Identities), Springer, Elsevier, and many others, he received the 1% Global Top Reviewer  Award from Publons, New Zealand in 2018. He is a certified Publons Academy mentor and a Diamond Level Author at Ezines (U.S.A.). with over sixty journal publications, more than ten book chapters, and over 200 e-articles.
