Born in Mrewa, and attended Nhowe and Moleli High Schools in Zimbabwe. Graduated from the University of Zimbabwe with: B.Sc. majoring in Geography and Mathematics (1999), Post graduate diploma in Land and Geographic Information Systems (2000), and M.Sc. in Land and Geographic Information Systems (2002). Joined the University of Zimbabwe, Department of Geography and Environmental Science as a lecturer in October 2002. Completed a Master of Philosophy in GIS and Remote Sensing at the University of Cambridge, UK (2005-2006). At the University of Zimbabwe (2002-2008), was involved in the teaching of spatial analysis, hydrology, geographical information systems, remote sensing, water resources management, computing, and statistics/ quantitative techniques. Later joined the Catholic University of Mozambique (2008 - 2011) as head of department and later as pedagogical director within the Centre for GIS, were I developed and coordinated the following course curriculums: (1) MSc in Regional Development Planning, (2) MSc in Geographic Information Systems, (3) BSc Regional, District and Town Planning, (4) BSc Environmental Science and Management. Joined Gorongosa National Park (2011 - 2012) in Mozambique as the GIS and Database Manager, within the Scientific Services Department and was responsible for designing, maintenance and management of the GIS and remote sensing database. My interests are in the application of geo-information science in climate change modelling, vegetation monitoring, hydrology and water resources management and geo-statistics. I have advanced geo-informatics knowledge and skills, including, database management and ground survey. Additionally, I am capable of advanced statistical analysis skills in multivariate and spatio-temporal analysis of geographic, ecological and socioeconomic data.
