My research interest in climate change studies; understanding of observed climate change impacts, indigenous and local knowledge of climate change and the influence of both national and international climate change negotiations; and application of Remote Sensing and GIS to land-atmospheric interactions. My current research is focusing on Climate change implications on the mobility of pastoralists in sub-Saharan African countries. I focus on two major research problems: the sensitivity of pastoralists (e.g.  Fulani herders in West Africa) to climate change, and their adaptive capacity to the extreme weather events. I explore spatiotemporal changes in climate and how to enhance sensitivities to climate change impacts and adaptive capacities of smallholder farmers through climate-smart agriculture. I have engaged and contributed to research in the areas of climate change impacts assessment, adaptation options and mitigation strategic studies in Africa.

I have gained academic experience at universities in Nigeria, the USA, Norway and the UK, and hold a PhD in Geography from King's College London, UK. Before joining the University of Vienna, I was a lecturer in the Department of Geography at Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, Nigeria. I am currently the lead author for IPCC AR6, Working Group II, Chapter 9: Africa.
