Biography: 

Research interests:

Based on professional   and academic experience, my expertise and interests are in a host of natural resources management sciences in particular in the following applied disciplines: Soils and Agronomy; Land Capability Mapping and Classification for Rain-fed Agriculture; Soil Survey and Land Evaluation; Integrated Spatial Planning; Regional and Rural Development Planning; Land/ Spatial / Geographical Information Systems; and Remote Sensing and Image Analysis.

I am currently engaged with a study of climate change dynamics in Namibia, in particular, the rainfall patterns across four conceptual rainfall gradients to predict climate scenarios using statistical downscaling models.
