I am a  Geospatial Data Scientist working within the Climate Resilience Team of Wageningen Environmental Research, which is one of the applied research institutes of Wageningen University & Research.

My research focuses on how geospatial information, big data analytics, machine learning and process-based models (crop growth, hydrology etc.) can be harnessed to provide detailed and timely information towards enhancing climate resilience of food systems, watersheds, ecosystems and urban environments. I am currently involved in several running projects in the Netherlands, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia. 

Previously, I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in geospatial data science for environmental systems analysis with Wageningen University. I also worked as Project Consusltant and GIS & Environmental Modelling Specialist with the Africa Rice Center in Benin & Cote d'ivoire. Africa RIce Center is one of the 15 centers that make up the Consultative Group for International Agricultural Research (CGIAR). 

I have a doctorate degree in Environmental Systems Analysis from Wageningen University and a Masters degree in GIS & Environmental Modelling from the University of Hull, UK.
