I am generally interested in understanding and representing social and spatial dynamics and intricacies of population behaviour within a framework of Interdisciplinary Studies, Population Geography, Quantitative Social Science and Computer Modelling. My research activities are grouped around the development and application of small area classifications, geographic information systems and geographic information science for informing public policy.
A series of themes and application areas include:
I have particular interest in developing novel and multidisciplinary research methods for investigating inequalities and inequities at small spatial scales. For more details about my work, please see the publications, research and biography sections.
Africa's first interactive, open-source and peer reviewed small area segmentation and geo-visualisation system developed for all Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Nigeria.
