Ibrahim Wahab is on a joint PhD programme between the Lund University and the University of Ghana. He is one of the two PhD students on the Yield Gaps Project which seeks to measure agricultural yield gaps in Ghana and Kenya. His main research area is the application of contemporary aerial-based remote sensors such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in remote sensing and crop yield measurement in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Ibrahim holds a Bachelor’s degree in Geography and Resource Development with Political Science from the University of Ghana and an MPhil degree in Development Geography from the University of Oslo.
Main research interests include remote sensing of crops, research methods, agricultural sustainability and food security in developing countries, and rural development.
The Yield Gaps Project aims at unravelling the causes and implications of crop productivity gaps in underperforming regions in Sub-Saharan Africa through the integration of geospatial, biophysical and socio-economic approaches.
