Joseph Kofi Wireko is a full-time faculty member at the Faculty of IT-Business of the Ghana Technology University College (GTUC) in Accra, and Research Fellow in the Aalborg University, Denmark. He has over 20 years’ experience in Academics, Industries, and Research work in Africa and Europe. He holds a Master of Science degree (MSc.) in International Marketing and Strategy from the Norwegian School of Management (BI). He also has a Master of Business Administration (MBA-marketing) degree from the University of Ghana after successfully completing his undergraduate studies in Geography and Resource Development with Political Science (B.A. Hons.) from the same university. Joseph’s recent academic achievement, prior to undertaking his PhD studies (Aalborg University, Denmark), has been the completion of a post-graduate Certificate in Higher Education (PgCert HE) from the University of Coventry (UK). His recent research interest is in the studies of the intersection of information technology and marketing. He is interested in how to leverage technology, particularly the Internet in the socio-economic challenges in developing countries, in the area of smart cities concept application, digital marketing, online retailing, and the sharing economy. On one hand, he studies how data, particularly data that profiles individuals and depicts their social relationships, is gathered, processed and applied by firms to acquire and retain customers; on the other hand, he studies how stakeholders, particularly municipal and city authorities and policymakers, can leverage the presence and the ubiquitous nature of the Internet in creating demand-driven and multi-modal transportation systems, especially in developing countries.
