Dr Kazeem Ishola

Social Sciences Institute (MUSSI), National Centre for Geocomputation (NCG), ICARUS

Post-Doctoral Researcher - Land Surface Modelling (Dynamical Modelling)


Kazeem is a postdoctoral researcher at the ICARUS and National Centre for Geocomputation in Maynooth University, Ireland. He has a background in Meteorology and Climate Science, and completed his PhD in 2021 at the Department of Geography, with specialisation in land surface modelling and land-atmosphere interactions. Kazeem's PhD programme was fully-funded under Teagasc PhD Walsh Fellowship Programme, Ireland. Prior to joining Maynooth University in 2017, he worked as a Teaching Assistant on the Undergraduate Meteorology modules within the Department of Meteorology at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Nigeria.

Kazeem's research interests focus on land-atmosphere interactions, climate extreme events, and integration of observations and dynamic land surface modelling at local and regional scales. His current research under Terrain-AI project that is jointly funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and Microsoft, uses an advanced community NOAH-MP dynamic land surface model, within the framework of high resolution land data assimilation system for monitoring terrestrial fluxes of CO2, water and energy across complex environments in Ireland. He has actively participated in a number of other local and international collaborative research projects and has consistently published in high ranking international journals such as Nature Scientific Reports, Journal of Climatology, Agriculture and Forest Meteorology, etc.
