A Senior Lecturer with the University of Ghana, Legon, Dr. Nana Ama Browne has been spotted on an electricity pole hanging a National Democratic Congress (NDC) party flag to catch.
A photo of her standing on a ladder and hanging the flag has been widely shared on social media.
Dr Nana Ama lost to former Deputy Minister, Felix Kwakye Ofosu in her bid to become the NDC’s Parliamentary Candidate in the Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese (AAK) constituency.
The defeat notwithstanding, the lecturer has opted to be part of the party’s campaign team in the constituency.
About Dr Nana Ama Browne
Dr. Nana Ama Browne Klutse is a Senior Research Scientist at the Ghana Space Science and Technology Institute of the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission. She is the Manager of the Remote Sensing and Climate Center at the Institute.
She holds a PhD in Climatology from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Her research focuses on climate modelling, climate impact assessments on society (health, energy, and gender). She has worked on both national and international projects and consultancies including the climate and health project in Ghana and the ongoing global CORDEX experiment. She is a Lead Author in Working Group 1 the Intergovermental Panel for Climate Change Sixth Assessment Report (2018 to 2021).
She has co-authored a good number of journal article publications and academic books to her credit. Her article published in Environmental Research Letters in May 2018 on Potential impact of 1.5 °C and 2 °C global warming on consecutive dry (CDD) and wet days (CWD) over West Africa revealed that enhanced warming results in a reduction in mean rainfall across the region, CDD will increase over the Guinea Coast, in tandem with a projected decrease in CWD at both 1.5 ◦C and 2◦C global warming. The article concludes that the difference in impacts between 1.5 °C and 2 °C warming on the projected changes imply that either we meet the threshold of 1.5 °C or 2 °C we are going to face similar seasonal impacts in consecutive dry and wet days over West Africa.
Courses she teaches include General Physics, Cloud Physics, Atmospheric Physics, Climate dynamics of Africa, Regional Climate modelling. She supervises students’ research in Ghana and abroad at Masters and PhD levels. She also serves as an external examiner for universities in Ghana.
She dedicates her life for community services, mentors young men and women for education pursuits, self-confidence and self-motivation. She also trains professionals in etiquettes and assertiveness. As part of her service to give back to society, she is a motivation speaker and articulates effectively on all platforms. At the leisure time, she spends time with children with learning disabilities.
The party which recently outdoored Prof. Naana Opoku Agyemang as running mate to former President John Mahama is seeking to capture the AAK seat and several other seats which it lost to the NPP in 2016 in the 2020 elections.
