Present Research Infront of Renowned Scientists

I had the fantastic opportunity to deliver a brief presentation, which turned out to be an incredibly enriching learning experience. During my talk, I introduced the captivating idea of electroaerodynamics propulsion and its potential application in creating an intelligent solar panel cleaning system. The concept revolved around using laser-guided ionic wind to generate ions for efficiently cleaning solar panel surfaces. The feedback and appreciation I received from the audience were absolutely remarkable, making it an immensely rewarding learning journey.

Visiting Places

This program provides us with a wonderfully immersive and multifaceted environment where we not only have the opportunity to delve into everyone's culture, languages, and perspectives but also explore various facets of local life. Our journey included a visit to a weaving center, where we gained insights into the profound impact, historical significance, and the intrinsic value of cloth weaving. Additionally, we delighted in a visit to a Coco farm, where we savored delicious Coco chocolates and admired exquisite products. Finally, we embarked on a mesmerizing trip to a museum that revealed the captivating history of Asante kings, their families, intricate rituals, and the rich tapestry of their heritage. This experience truly bestowed upon me invaluable knowledge and a deeper understanding of their culture.

We came as Strangers , We became Friends:)

As the adage goes, all good things come to an end. On our final day, we enjoyed a delightful evening with delicious food and lively music. We danced, took pictures, and created unforgettable moments. I had the honor of expressing gratitude on behalf of the international student community, with a special thanks to Dr. Akyana Britwum, Dr. Henry Martin, and Dr. Michael Kweku Edem Donkor for their unwavering support.
I also want to thank notable professors and researchers like Dr. Peter de Groot,Vice President of SPIE, who encouraged us to aim high in our future research endeavors. Professors Morgan Mitchell, Turgut Durduran, and Emmanuel Baffu Amuah, as well as Dr. Allan Johnson, Dr. Prince Bawuah, Dr. Bárbara Burlini Polesso, and Dr. Viktoria Golovanova for their valuable feedback and inspiration in the field of photonics.
To my fellow participants, your presence made this journey profound and joyful. Let's treasure these memories and pledge to support each other in our future endeavors.
