Born in Merawi, Ethiopia, I attended my education in Merawi primary, elementary and secondary high schools. I joined Addis Ababa University for undergraduate study and awarded with BSc. Degree in Geology and Geophysics. I went to the Netherlands for post graduate study and awarded with MSc. degree in Geoinformatics. I also earn my PhD degree in cadastre and land governance from University of Twente, the Netherlands. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor in Geoinformatics and cadastre at the Institute of Land Administration. Besides teaching, I am Research and Community Service Coordinator of the Institute of Land Administration. I am also coordinator of the ‘its4land’ project from the Institute of Land Administration side. This project is a consortium of seven international universities and stakeholders that aims to research on Geospatial technology innovations for land tenure security in East Africa.
My research interest includes socio-spatial dimensions of land and environment, land use planning, Innovative high resolution technologies for land governance and administration, and cadastral modelling.
