Dr. Robinson Mugo, holds a PhD in Satellite Oceanography and GIS from Hokkaido University, Japan, and is currently working as the Project Manager on the SERVIR Eastern & Southern Africa Project (https://servirglobal.net/Regions/ESAfrica) at the Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD, https://www.rcmrd.org/). SERVIR is a joint initiative of NASA, USAID, and leading geospatial organizations in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, which partners with countries and organizations in these regions to address critical challenges in climate change, food security, water and related disasters, land use, and air quality. Using satellite data and geospatial technology, SERVIR co-develops innovative solutions through a network of regional hubs to improve resilience and sustainable resource management at local, national and regional scales. Robinson has research interests in the application of GIS & Satellite Remote Sensing in the Societal Benefit Areas, as stipulated by the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), among them agriculture, water, biodiversity, health, disasters and energy among others. Previously, Robinson has held a post-Doctoral research position in Japan and also served as Research Scientist in KMFRI, leading an activity dubbed ‘Spatial Mapping of Fishing Grounds’ under the World Bank funded Kenya Coastal Development Project (KCDP). He has published over 29 peer reviewed articles on ecological niche models of marine and terrestrial species and conservation, based on GIS and Earth Observation (satellite remotely sensed) data. He has a good grasp of GIS analyses and geo-statistics. Part of his experience also includes operational analysis of remotely sensed images using the Terascan system developed by Seaspace Corporation. He is particularly interested in development of 2D and 3D habitat models capable of predicting global warming driven changes in habitats of apex level predators. To facilitate knowledge dissemination to upcoming scientists, he has actively participated in training initiatives (GIS/Remote Sensing training courses) and written training material to facilitate the same (e.g. the IOCCG-EU-PRESPO Handbook on interpretation of satellite remotely sensed information). To present research finidings and attend scientific meetings, Robinson has travelled widley in different parts of the World.
