Chief Executive Officer at Insyt

Profile

Daniel is a Geo-information scientist and agricultural economist with a unique mix of professional experience, from international development to entrepreneurship to rich scientific career. Daniel bridges the gap between farmer realities and technological innovations and has unique ability to translate technological solutions to solve real-life problems affecting small, illiterate farmers. As a proud farmer, he founded Eucharia Farms Ltd. and has spoken widely at several international conferences to promote the use of ICT in Africa's smallholder agriculture.

In research, he conducted a pioneering research in post-harvest management of perishables using advanced remote sensing techniques to model the post-harvest decay of vegetables during transport in West Africa. These models are currently being developed into a web service and a software application to promote inter-regional trade in West Africa.

Daniel is also a fellow of the United Nations University - EHS and pursues a doctorate degree in Agricultural Economics with focus on disaster risk reduction, climate risk and vulnerability assessment in rural communities.
