Currently a full professor of Black Studies and International Studies at Portland State University (PSU), Oregon. Formerly keeper of the Ghana Museums and Monuments Board (1973-1978) and served as lecturer and senior lecturer at the University of Ghana (1983-1987). As the Edward Moulton Barrett Lecturer in Archaeology at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica (1987-1992) Kofi initiated research and teaching programs in Archaeology for the first time at the University of the West Indies (UWI), and established the UWI Mona Archaeological research project (UMARP), which subsequently developed the Maroon Heritage Research Project (MHRP). Kofi serves as the Vice President of the International Association for Caribbean Archaeology (IACA) and chair the Code of Ethics Committee of the Association. As a board member of the African Burial Ground Project of the City of New York contributing related archaeological material and analytical framework and interpretative data on Africa and the African Diaspora.
Kofi's research activities since the launching of the Volta Basin Archaeological Research Project in 1981 have brought together Africa and the African Diaspora in many ways with knowledge and experience on of one side of the Atlantic helping to understand the other in more effective ways. Dr. Agorsah's archaeological endeavor continues to merge material from the Caribbean, South America, West Africa and the Indian ocean through consultations, active field projects and publications. While environmental and locational differences can affect settlement and spatial behavior, Kofi's work in both areas indicate fundamental underlying factors as groups of Africans in Africa and the African diaspora evolve their social networking and relationships to make their contributions to human history. Reconstructing the group formations and their functional adaptive mechanisms have been major challenges throughout Dr. Agorsah's researches in Ghana, Jamaica and Suriname. The similarities are misleading some researchers to lean toward rushed conclusions but the differences help to obtain a balance in the analysis and interpretations.

As the first in her family to have the chance to go to college and to excel to the doctoral program level, Cheryl is also one of the very, very few African Americans women seriously pursuing field Archaeology in Suriname She has managed to make excellent use of her acquired talents in field and laboratory work in Suriname the USA and Britain. She fluently speaks the Maroon languages of the Ndyuka and the Saramaka as well as the general Suriname Sranan Tongo. This makes her a very valuable professional member and co-PI of he Maroon Heritage Research Project which she will eventually explore for he doctoral dissertation. With experience in pottery and general artifact analysis, Cheryl will facilitate the process in the facilities of the Suriname Museum and in the field camp. An excellent knowledge of the field areas enables her to independently conduct field surveys and locational investigation of archaeological sites. Member ship of professional Associations include the Society for Historical Archaeology (SHA), International Association For Caribbean Archaeology (IACA, Society for Caribbean Studies (SCS), Caribbean Studies Association (CSA), Society for American Archaeology.
