Proffil personol

Proffil

I am currently a lecturer in Remote Sensing in GIS in the Dept. Geography and Earth Sciences at Aberystwyth University, UK. With a PhD in Geomatics (Newcastle University, UK) and an MSc in Environmental Modelling and Monitoring (Manchester University, UK) I have a background in hydrological/environmental modelling, spatial statistics, GIS and remote sensing.

Currently sitting within the Earth Observation and Ecosystem Dynamics research group (https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/dges/research/earth-observation-laboratory/) my research has centred on the use of remote sensing for mapping biophysical parameters including applications related to land cover dynamics, hydrology and malaria vector ecology, using a range of systems from optical/radar satellites to manned aircraft and drones.I have been keen to focus the application of my skills to public health challenges with previous research projects including the use of hydraulic flood modelling for mapping malaria habitats in Western Zambia and the use of drones for providing spatial intelligence for malaria elimination in Zanzibar.

Diddordebau ymchwil

Together with collaborators we have recently secured over $15.5m for a range of research projects including: mapping mangrove forest change across the African Continent (Mangroves Capital); the use of hydraulic flood modelling for mapping malaria vector habitats in Western Zambia (NERC); the use of drones for extracting market-ready products (Innovate UK); and supporting precision agriculture in South America with Earth Observation (UK Space Ageny). Alongside these current projects, over the last five years I have been working closely with the Zanzibar Ministry for Health to provide spatial intelligence for precision larviciding (Royal Geographical Society, Innovative Vector Control Consortium): this work fits within an overall strategy to develop practical spatial tools for operational vector control to help combat diseases like malaria. I warmly welcome collaborators with a similar line of enquiry.

Arbenigedd sy’n gysylltiedig â NDC y CU

Yn 2015, cytunodd gwladwriaethau sy’n aelodau'r Cenhedloedd Unedig ar 17 o Nodau Datblygu Cynaliadwy (NDC) byd-eang i ddod â thlodi i ben, diogelu’r blaned a sicrhau ffyniant i bawb. Mae gwaith y person hwn yn cyfrannu at y NDC canlynol:

  • NDC 2 - Dim Newyn
  • NDC 3 - Iechyd a Llesiant Da
  • NDC 13 - Gweithredu ar y Newid yn yr Hinsawdd
  • NDC 14 - Bywyd o Dan y Dŵr
  • NDC 15 - Bywyd ar y Tir
