Personal profile


Kofi is a Senior Lecturer in Pharmaceutics at the University of Huddersfield. Kofi completed his PhD at the Medway School of Pharmacy, University of Kent in 2012. His PhD was an Industrial CASE studentship with the University and the polymer company Colorcon. His research work which specifically focused on the development of an in-vitro testing method to investigate drug release from hypromellose matrix tablets under fed and fasted conditions was supervised by Professor Ali Nokhodchi and Dr Ali Rajabi-Siahboomi. Following the successful completion of his PhD, Kofi was employed by the University of Huddersfield in 2012 as a Research Assistant, Research Fellow, Lecturer before taking up the post of a Senior Lecturer in 2016. Kofi also became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in 2014. Kofi successfully collaborates with other universities and several pharmaceutical industries.
