He has a Ph.D. in Science and Technology Studies, with interests in studies of research uptake and impact, research collaboration, and bibliometric analysis with a focus on research in Africa. The project on inequality in forest science is embedded in the broader research portfolio of the DSI-NRF Centre of Excellence in Scientometrics and STI Policy (SciSTIP), housed at CREST. The project offers a unique opportunity to apply bibliometric methods in the study of inequality in science, within both the global and African contexts.
