Research Interests

My research activities are in two parts. The first one is in the field of science (Physics) education, space science education, ICT in education and curriculum studies at various level of education and on seeing how the teaching and learning of science can be improved upon and in developing the interest of students in the learning of science at all levels which will eventually spur them to pursue technologically oriented (self sustaining) career in the nearest future. The second part is in my primary field, which is in the field of Atmospheric Physics.
