I am a Fellow of Geoinformation Society of Nigeria. Space Scientist with focus on the applications of the space science and spatial technologies to solve socio-economic, environmental, infrastructural and security problems. I have over twenty publications in both local and international journal and conference proceedings. My research and work focused on Urban Remote Sensing, Geographic Information Science Advances, and Satellite Remote Sensing Applications with successful Project implementation and Expert Workshops for National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA), United Nations (UN-FAO), World Bank (through NEWMAP), ECOWAS, UN-HABITAT, Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC), CIESIN etc.
I am an Alumnus of great Institutions: Yaba College of Technology (HND.), Lagos State University (PgDip.), University of Nottingham, UK (MSc.) and University of Leicester UK. (PhD.) I have multi-disciplinary academic and professional background from urban and regional planning to geographic information science, environmental management, disaster risk reduction and management, and remote sensing. My research is focused on environmental, disaster management, geospatial-intelligence, socio-economic, urban and regional, population studies and many more for sustainable development and survival of mankind.
I am confident and enjoyed the experience of working in different cultures or countries. I am keen to work with cerebral scientists to develop new techniques and methods to maximise the potential of geospatial data and information analysis and integration for urban remote sensing, planning and management, environmental modelling, monitoring and big data management.
I am a team player as well as a mentor with good communication, presentation and motivational skills, and an intuitive ability to make people work towards realisation of their potentials. An Active Member of American Society of Photogrammetry and remote Sensing, Member of Group on Earth Observation (GEO), AARSE, ISPRS, IEEE-GRSS and many other groups.
I am happily married and blessed with great children. I enjoy traveling for tourism, swimming and reading.
