Kwadwo Antwi-Fordjour is an Applied Mathematician of African diaspora and received his PhD in 2016 from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). He joined the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Samford University in 2018 after a 2-year Visiting Assistant Professor position at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana. He is very passionate about teaching and teaches a wide range of undergraduate mathematics classes using active learning techniques. His professional interests lie in the area of ordinary, partial, and stochastic differential equations where he models biological, ecological, epidemiological, and social systems. One of his recent works includes working with undergraduate students on the effect of fear on two-species predator-prey systems incorporating prey herd behavior and mutual interference. He currently serves as an Associate Editor of the Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computing. Outside of mathematics, he has interests in soccer, track, hiking, watching movies, choral music and spending quality time with his wife and two children.
