Research Interests:

My research interest is in water resource management, climate science and disaster risk management with a focus in hydrological systems and drought modelling. I specialize in Digital Terrain modelling (DTM), LiDAR and photogrammetry to develop spatio-temporal solutions using various packages such as python, MATLAB, ArcGIS, QGIS, ERDAS, etc. Effects of climate change and lack of adaptation creates vulnerability to our environment and society therefore understanding our ecosystem through applied geoinformatics gives us a fighting chance through fact driven sustainable development and decision making.
