Alex Osei-Kojo is a public policy scholar specializing in environmental/energy policy and natural resource policy, in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and the United States (US). Focusing on these substantive policy areas, his research agenda is to understand how policy actor’s and institution’s (rules) interactions influence outcomes. While ideas and concepts from the fields of public policy , political science, and public management shape his research, he generally situates his analysis within policy process theories and applies diverse qualitative and quantitative methods to collect and interpret data.
A native of Ghana, he is currently a PhD candidate at the School of Public Affairs at the University of Colorado Denver. He previously taught undergraduate public policy and administration courses at the University of Ghana Business School. Besides participating in several local and international academic conferences and workshops, he has published in international peer-reviewed journals such as the International Journal of Multiple Research Approaches, Public Organization Review, and Environment, Development and Sustainability. He has also received various awards, including the Public Administration Theory Network (PATNet) Fellowship (2019), the Equity and Inclusion Fellowship (2018), and the International Young Scholars’ Fellowship (2018). He serves on the Student Activities Committee of the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management (APPAM).
