GIS & Data Researcher

Thomas joined the IPIS team in September 2019 as GIS & Data officer. He provides a scientific support to projects related to the exploitation of natural resources and conflict mapping in Sub-Saharan Africa. This includes developing scientific research methods on data collection and analysis, conceiving and developing digital tools for data visualisation and managing the IPIS database (data curation, open data strategy, etc.). Thomas holds a PhD degree in Geography (University of Glasgow), having investigated environmental challenges associated with land-use and land-cover changes. His research focused on long-term forest dynamics based on geo-referenced historical maps and field data (plants, soil). By doing so, he has developed expertise in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping and data science methods including geospatial analysis and statistics. Thomas also holds a Masters in Archaeo-sciences (University of Burgundy), a Masters in Integrated Development and Land planning (University of Montpellier, MNHN and AgroParisTech), and a Bachelor in Biology and Earth Sciences (University of Lorraine).
