General research interests

The history and theory of Africa's development and its influences on urban fabrics. Secondly, an urban development tool which can assist in making informed decisions in the large-scale planning context in urban areas, where the pure scale, preexisting difficulties, and tremendous growth rates in combination with challenging planning environments make it difficult for typical/traditional planning approaches to achieve the needed progress and counteract the growth's negative side-effects.
