Data Science | Remote Sensing | Climate Science | Climate Change

I am currently a PhD student at the University of Rwanda. My PhD is fully funded by a scholarship from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, given through the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences.
I am researching on how to leverage machine learning to improve satellite rainfall estimates for African rain-fed agriculture.
I obtained a BSc. Mathematics from the University for Development Studies, Navrongo, Ghana, in 2017.
I subsequently obtained an MSc. Mathematical Sciences (Big Data and Computer Security) from AIMS Senegal, in 2019.
My research interests include data science, machine learning, remote sensing, climate change, climate science, and applied mathematics.
I was recently a research scholar at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics, ICRISAT, Mali where I researched on leveraging machine learning with satellite images for plot delineation in the African rain-fed agriculture setting. Below are some of the tools/softwares I use:
