Dr. Boateng's background:

I have worked in a variety of environments with different types of professionals, which enables me to understand processes and to help you with your literature review and research.

 In a lab technician I worked on projects with engineers, scientists , OSHA/regulatory personnel, sales managers in quality control and new product development laboratories at General Electric and Corning Inc.  

As a technical information scientist and library manager, I conducted Information research projects at Corning, Bausch @ Lomb and Xerox for engineers, scientists, marketing/sales, OSHA and regulatory personnel.

As a Business Services analyst I was involved with information technology projects at the USPTO,-EDS and Xerox.

I look forward to assisting you.
