Work Experience- Major project experience: Contouring project using theodolite and level for the Postgraduate diploma in Land Surveying. In addition, I served a three months - internship experience with Borno State Land and Survey Department in 1990. - I undertook a split Ph.D. programme in Remote Sensing. Consequently, after a year of literature review and image processing session, I returned to Nigeria from England to undertake one year of ground data collection. Similarly, while in the UK, I took part in the ground data collection for the monitoring of Agriculture with Remote Sensing MARS project for Europe in Silsoe College. - Currently I am taking part in a project that focuses on survey of forest resources and land degradation in North East Nigeria.
