I’m an interdisciplinary PhD student at the University of Edinburgh. I research poverty in rural Africa and its relationships with environmental resources and ecosystem services. I work with remotely sensed satellite imagery and relate this to household survey datasets and measures of rural poverty in Mozambique to explore the role that remote sensing can play in future socio-ecological monitoring systems. The aim is to build understanding of how we can develop fine resolution remote sensing methods in order to interrogate the spatio-temporal anatomy of poverty indices within and between different socio-ecological systems.
For more information about my PhD project please see the section entitled My PhD Project. I’m working on finishing up some blog posts about my experiences so far, the first of which will be a look at a recent research trip I undertook in southern Mozambique. A presentation and linked conference paper for the upcoming SPIE: Remote Sensing Digital Forum will be made available on the Publications and Conference Papers section later in September.
Otherwise please feel free to get in touch.
