Emmanuel Nyadzi is a post-doctoral researcher (focus on applied climatology). The central aim of his research is to understand and model the complexity of climate and environmental changes on natural and human systems and to develop appropriate adaptation measures. His research aims to address relevant scientific gaps while meeting practical needs of society.
He uses a multi-approach and multi-data research framework to answer complex climate change questions. For example, he possesses extraordinary interdisciplinary skills in combining both quantitative and qualitative research methods in addition to interpretive tools (models). He also has expertise in accessing, reducing, analyzing and interpreting large data sets or atmospheric reanalysis data, climate change projection data, weather and seasonal climate prediction data, remotely observed satellite data. In addition, he has extensive experience in using social participatory methods (structured interviews, focus group discussions, games) to explore the human perspective on emerging climate and environmental issues.
His research interest revolves around:
- Climate impact, risk, vulnerability and adaptation of different sectors.
-Weather and climate information services for different sectors
-Ethno climatology and Citizen Science
