I am an Assistant Professor at Louisiana State University (LSU), having arrived in the fall of 2012. Before arriving at LSU, I taught for one academic school year at Eastern Kentucky University (EKU).
My ethnic background is Ghanaian, so I have a passion for Africa. This has afforded me opportunities such as being utilized as a resource person for study abroad groups traveling to Ghana. These lectures typically pertain to culture, development, and future outlook of Ghana.
Professionally, I have worked in a number of roles within intercollegiate athletic departments. In these roles, I mainly worked with student-athletes in academic support and career development.
I earned my B.A. degree in Political Science (2007) and M.Ed. degree in Higher Education Administration (2008) from the University of Oklahoma. I obtained my Ph.D. in Sport Management from Texas A&M University (2011).
Other facts about myself:
I am married to Michelle Agyemang (née Dodoo). We met as undergraduate students at the University of Oklahoma, and we currently reside in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with our daughter Azaria and sons Zayden and Ezri. My family comes from the Ashanti ethnic group, one of the Akan peoples of Ghana.
