Daniel Brain Akakpo is a PhD candidate at Wageningen University in the Netherlands and conducting his field research in northern Ghana. His research is under the N2Africa project and is captioned “Grain legume residues as a livestock feed resource for smallholders in northern Ghana” The research is aimed at understanding the roles and functions of grain legume residues in livestock farming systems and identify options to improve their utilisation by smallholders in northern Ghana. This we hope to achieve through field experimentation, laboratory analyses and social surveys.

Before joining N2Africa, Brain was a research associate at IITA on the project “Africa Research in Sustainable Intensification for the Next Generation” (Africa RISING). Brain enjoys cooking, travelling and working on the field with farmers.
