I am a PhD student specializing in recommendation systems. I am deeply engaged in advancing the fields of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and graph theory. Concurrently, I contribute to 'HydroAs', a project aimed at combating flood-related challenges. HydroAs endeavors to predict flooding events in advance by integrating traditional hydrological models with innovative AI techniques. This interdisciplinary approach reflects my commitment to applying cutting-edge research to address critical environmental issues.

African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS)
I am Kossi Mawouena Samuel Afola, a Togolese national with a strong academic and professional background in the sciences, particularly in physics and mathematical sciences. My academic journey includes a Bachelor of Science in Physical Sciences from the University of Lome, Togo, and a Master of Science in Mathematical Sciences from the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Accra, Ghana. My professional experiences are diverse and include significant contributions in both educational and technological fields. I have taught physical science at the high school level and have been actively involved in AI training with CoTIA (Communauté Togolaise de l’Intelligence Artificielle), where I contribute to building a tech-savvy community. Additionally, I have taken on leadership roles such as serving as Zindi’s ambassador to Togo, spearheading the Togo Data Science Community Forum. My technical skills are extensive, with proficiency in programming languages like Python, experience in graph neural networks, and expertise in quantum field theory, as evidenced by my work on the Lehmann–Symanzik–Zimmerman (LSZ) reduction formula. I have also applied my skills to healthcare, focusing on machine learning in clinical prediction models, particularly for cardiovascular risk prediction. In addition to my professional and academic pursuits, I am actively engaged in the broader scientific community, as demonstrated by my participation in conferences like the Deep Learning Indaba and the Ghana School of Mathematical Modeling. Fluency in both English and French, coupled with my interpersonal skills and ability to communicate effectively, enhances my versatility and capacity to operate in diverse environments. My journey is marked by a continuous pursuit of knowledge and a commitment to applying my skills for the betterment of society, particularly in the fields of education, technology, and healthcare.
