Hello, I’m Emmanuel !

I am a PhD Candidate in Demography and Population Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand, where I am examining opportunities for advancing sexual health information for young African adults in the digital age. My broad research interest revolves around the social determinants of health and well-being as well as opportunities to illuminate these using digital sources of data.

Among other recognitions, I received the Green Talents award for sustainable research in 2019 by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in Germany. I mostly use data from the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS), but recently, I have been using data from online sources such as online surveys and social media platforms. My work has been featured in international journals such as Plos ONE, Health & Place, BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth, the Archives of Sexual Behaviors, as well as others.
