Research project: Investigating the link between landscape and pollination effects for enhanced hive productivity


Pamela is an ARPPIS PhD Scholar supervised by Dr Tobias Landmann (icipe). Pamela’s research interests include the application of geographic information system (GIS) and remote sensing analysis techniques to research and development projects in developing countries. Of particular interest is the use of spatial modeling for enhanced understanding of complex interrelated processes. She is currently researching the link between landscape and pollination effects, a study that aims to assess the value of the landscape for beekeeping using pollination efficacy as the key measure. She is supported by a scholarship from DAAD.

Pamela completed her undergraduate studies in Engineering Surveying at the University of Nairobi, Kenya, and obtained a MSc in Geographic Information Science from Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. Pamela is a member of the Society for Conservation GIS (SCGIS), Kenya.
