Asare, a Ghanaian by origin, is a Lecturer at the department of Physics, Baze
University, Abuja, Nigeria. He is also rounding off a doctorate degree in
Physics at the African University of Science and Technology (AUST), Abuja,
Nigeria. He received his BSc degree in Physics from the University of Cape
Coast (UCC), Ghana in 2009. He accepted an appointment to be a Teaching
Assistant in the Department of Physics in the same institution for a one year
period. Joseph was admitted into the School of Theoretical Physics at the
African University of Science and Technology (AUST), Abuja in the year 2010 on
full scholarship. He has been a Visiting Graduate Student Research Collaborator
at Princeton University, USA. He has written a number of research papers on flexible electronics and
attended a number of conferences including the ICTP Workshop on “Regional
Workshop on Materials Science for Solar Energy Conversion”, held at the iTHEMBA
Labs, Cape Town, South Africa in 2013 where he won the Best Contribution Prize.
He has an unusual insight in communicating and aiding the understanding of Physics
