Terence Mushore

Senior Lecturer/Climate Scientist

Dr. Mushore is an experienced research scientist with excellent skills in research instruments designing, needs assessment, proposal writing, data analysis, remote sensing image processing, communication of findings, need-based product development and implementation of gap filling interventions. His key concerns are to use academic background, experience, collaborations and teamwork to ensure that communities are safe from adverse environmental/atmospheric conditions and that they use favourable physical and socio-demographic conditions to benefit their socio-economic activities as much as possible. He possesses PhD in Environmental Science (University of KwaZulu-Natal, Awarded in 2017), MSc in Geographical Information Systems and Earth Observations (ITC, Netherlands, 2012), Graduate Diploma in Meteorology (Meteorological Services Zimbabwe, 2008) and BSc Physics Degree (UZ, 2006). He is highly analytical as well as highly capable of handling qualitative and quantitative research procedures. He is acquainted with hands on experience in the use of state-of-the-art analytical, data analysis and decision support tools and techniques (including geo-spatial analysis [such as using ENVI, ArcGIS, ERDAS Imagine, Quantum GIS and ILWIS], programming [MatLab and IDL] and statistics [including SPSS, INSTAT, STATA]). He has experience with extension services to ensure effective implementation of interventions such as in Hydrology, Agro-meteorology and Disaster Management. Dr Mushore is an active consultant in the fields of research and product development, applied GIS and remote sensing, climate change, agro-meteorology and hydrometeorology. Due to expertise in GIS which involves learning and use of a variety of software for collecting, analysing, storing and presenting data, Dr Mushore is also very quick at learning and using other data handling software which come with developments in technology; thus highly computer literate. He has the ability to work in a fast-paced environment meeting
