Alumnus (Doctoral Researcher)

Evidence Chinedu Enoguanbhor is a PhD candidate at IRI-THESys and the Geography Department (Applied Geoinformation Science Lab) at Humboldt University, Berlin. His research topic is “Urban land dynamics in the Abuja city-region, Nigeria: integrating GIS, remotely sensed, and survey-based data to support land use planning”. The research focuses on the analysis of the past and current urban land dynamics in the context of land use planning at the urban and regional scales, developing different spatial planning scenarios to simulate future urban land expansion and identifying key challenges for land use planning and its environmental assessments.

Research Interests

  • Applied GIS and spatial modeling
  • Urban and Regional Land Use Dynamics/Planning
  • Environmental Assessments (EIA/SEA)
