His scientific activity and interests are gully erosion and sediment yield mapping/modelling in a changing environment using GIS applications. His research focus is to advance soil erosion and sediment yield mapping/modelling in African countries at a regional scale. Another primary research focus is gully erosion mapping and modeling of gully-derived sediment yield at regional scales in a GIS and by means of UAV photogrammetry.
