Richard Antwi is a Civil and Environmental Engineering PhD student at FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and a graduate research assistant at the Resilient Infrastructure and Disaster Response (RIDER) Center under Professor Eren Erman Ozguven. He is from Ghana, West Africa and was born in Kumasi. Before beginning his studies at FSU in 2021, he completed his M.Sc. degree in Geoscience at University College London in the U.K. in 2019 and his B.Sc. degree in Geomatic Engineering at KNUST in Ghana in 2017. He has experience and skills in land surveying, data analytics, remote sensing, and geospatial information technology. He has undertaken research projects using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and machine learning (ML) models to solve issues in transportation resilience, energy distribution and management, health and community safety. His PhD research is towards building resilient transportation systems. He is currently using artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning techniques for detecting roadway geometry features like school zones and turning lanes. He is also conducting a satellite imagery-based hurricane debris assessment in Florida.
