I am Joseph Udofia a Datageoscientist, Environmental Assessment Expert, Environmental Remediation Expert, Groundwater Remediation and Development Professional, Renewable Energy Professional and Nature Photographer. I am mostly in the field for Environmental Assessment and Restoration Data capture for Documentaries as a Datageoscientist. I currently work with the Hydrocarbon Pollution Remediation Project (HYPREP) of Nigeria's Federal Ministry of Environment which is unarguably the largest oil spill clean-up project in the world currently. I had visited over 300 oil spill contaminated sites and over 200 artisanal refining sites as part of the planned assessment of these sites for remediation and restoration.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I am particularly interested in UAV to aid my work with my team while in the field as most sites are unaccessible especially those sites by the sea shores and Atlantic ocean bays. My constant exposure to the field and frequent field visits had ignited my passion for nature photography especially in the area of Environmental Degradation Restoration and Natural Resources Conservation.
