Samuel Asumadu-Sarkodie was born and raised in Ghana. He’s the sixth of seven siblings. His primary education began from Rockanje Presby Experimental, Old-Tafo, Kumasi, Ghana and pursued Science at Kumasi Anglican Senior High School.
After staying home for two years and teaching Mathematics and Science at Ahwiaa D/A JHS, he pursued his first degree in Community Nutrition at the University for Development Studies, Tamale, Ghana.
After a successful completion of his bachelor’s, he served the compulsory Ghana National Service as a Nutrition Officer at Kwabre East District Health Directorate, Kumasi. As a Nutrition officer at the Mampongteng Hospital, he counseled patients on diet-related diseases, organized community surveillance programs and engaged the community in health education programs.
After mastering Nutrition and his interest in environmental and energy-related issues stirred as such, diverted from health into Masters in Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems at Middle East Technical University, Northern Cyprus Campus.
In Northern Cyprus, Samuel Asumadu-Sarkodie was a Teaching Assistant in the Chemistry Department, where he lectured and demonstrated Chemistry practicals to undergraduates, marking scripts and proctoring were also part of his duties.
Even though Samuel Asumadu-Sarkodie struggled in his first year switching from health to engineering with its corresponding advanced mathematical cum Mechanical engineering, however, he strived to thrive and finally arrived.
After his first year of the Master’s program, Samuel began to venture into scientific writing which gradually became an assert. Following multiple of his papers been rejected for over 30 times, he got breakthrough and begun excelling in the art of scientific writing.
Samuel Asumadu-Sarkodie broke the record of the number of scientific publications singlehandedly written by a student without the help of a Professor. Within one year, Samuel had written and published over 22 scientific publications that created fear and panic among the department committee leading to an investigation to fathom the possibility of the breakthrough.
Even though the publications came with a monetary reward but his breakthrough caused the University to change their publication award regulations to strictly offer monetary gains to only students who collaborated with Professors in the University. Even though Samuel Asumadu-Sarkodie was eventually cleared and conferred with his Master’s degree, the University withheld his monetary reward due him.
This unprofessional conduct from Middle East Technical University, Northern Cyprus did not scare him, before the completion of his Master’s thesis, he got a scholarship to study Ph.D. Environmental Science in Macquarie University, Australia.
After gaining scientific recognition in Energy Economics, Renewable Energy, Health Economics, Environmental and Resource Economics, Chemistry, and among others, Samuel was invited by many scientific journals as a peer reviewer, from that, Samuel became a Verified Peer Reviewer at Publons.
Samuel Asumadu-Sarkodie currently has over 30 referred international journal articles and has reviewed for over 66 different international journals with over 323 pre-publications reviews. Due to this, Samuel won 7 International Awards organized by Clavirate Sentinel of Science and was awarded the 2nd top reviewer in Australia.
