I am working with Professor Robert Bailis in the School of Forestry & Environmental (F&ES) Studies. My work has been directed towards understanding the spatial patterns of both woodfuel availability and its harvesting, within the broader areas of energy poverty and forest degradation. My current research at F&ES focuses on completing, ground-truthing and calibrating an innovative GIS-based tool for modeling woodfuel extraction dynamics and the expected vegetation response to projected disturbances. In parallel I am exploring cost-effective geo-statistical approaches to relate remotely sensed data to ground-based forest inventory data, with a view to mapping the spatial distribution of woodfuel-driven forest degradation. Previous results have caught the attention of several government and non-government institutions and NGOs, as this approach may provide the missing input for carbon offset projects involving fuelwood & charcoal efficient devices and sustainable forest management strategies.
