Paul graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Geomatic Engineering and Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) from the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology in 2013, and has a Postgraduate Diploma in Health Research Methods from the Pwani University. He is currently finalising a Masters in GIS from the Jomo Kenyatta University where his thesis is focusing on spatial modelling of health facility utilisation as a function of access and other demographic characteristics. From 2015, he worked with the LINK project as a GIS research assistant helping in assembly of long term climate data, mapping health facilities and assembly of geocoded malaria prevalence data. His interests are in creating spatial models for health facility utilisation, quantifying catchment populations and using these estimated to adjust routinely collected data.
