I am a Research Fellow at the School of Geography & Sustainable Development, University of St Andrews. I am also 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.
If you are very passionate about computational and digital demography or #rStats as much as I do, you may find some of the resources on my blog very useful and interesting to read. You could also check out R-bloggers for more tutorials for learning R. I would be glad to receive your comment and will appreciate your questions and feedback.
