Ph.D. Geospatial Science & Engineering
Office Phone Number: 

Francis K. Dwomoh is currently a PhD candidate in Geospatial Science & Engineering with Dr. Michael Wimberly as his advisor. Francis is using satellite earth observation and geospatial analysis to study the interactions between climatic and human influences on the fire regime in West African tropical forest ecosystems. His research aims to improve our understanding of the spatio-temporal dynamics of tropical forest fires, fire-mediated ecosystem state transitions, and forest degradation as well as future vulnerability of forests in the region. Francis has been awarded a NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NNX14AL23H) in support of his PhD research.

Francis Dwomoh earned a BSc in Natural Resources Management from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology (KNUST) in Ghana, and an MSc in  Geo-information Science and Earth Observation for Natural Resource Management jointly from KNUST and Faculty ITC (University of Twente) in the Netherlands. Prior to his admission at SDSU Francis worked at the Forestry Research Institute of Ghana (FORIG) as a Research Scientist.
