He had previously reviewed papers for the Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Journal of Soil and Water Conservation, IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing (TGRS), International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) abstract review. In 2005, Dr. Twumasi authored a book on Applied Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) published by Edwin Mellen Press in New York . He has also published, authored, and/or co-authored several publications in a variety of refereed journals, and international conferences, and symposia proceedings addressing the use of remote sensing and GIS technology in assessing and managing Earth's natural resources.

He obtained his bachelor's and master's degree from York University in Toronto , Canada and his Ph.D. from Alabama A&M University . He is currently teaching Remote Sensing and GIS in the Department of Advanced Technologies at Alcorn State University . Prior to joining Alcorn in the Fall of 2007, he was a Research Professor of Remote Sensing and GIS at Alabama A&M University .

Dr. Twumasi's research interests, which are always at the epicenter of his teaching, are anchored in bio-centric discourse, intergenerational fairness, environmental management, sustainability, climate and global change, environmental impact assessment, and international development and the application of remote sensing and GIS technology in natural resources management. His work also includes image processing, classification and analysis, GIS database construction as well as the development of policies using GIS and Remote Sensing technology in order to inform environmental decision-making on the risks associated with the continuous anthropocentric degradation of sensitive natural habitats.
