Sani Ibrahim studied physical geography at the Abdou Moumouni University in Niamey, Niger. He specialised in sedimentology and the study of palaeoenvironments. He is currently working on the transformation dynamics of Sahelo-Saharan environments (arid and semi-arid zones). His PhD, defended at the Institute of Physical Geography and Geology at the Julius Maximilian University in Würzburg, focused current morphological changes in the surface layers of dunes and the potential for regenerating degraded soils and ecosystems.
Sani currently teaches and carries out research at the Geography Department of the University of Niamey in the fields of geomorphology, applied climatology and applied hydrology. He has carried out a wide range of development work on water bodies, farmland as well as degraded land. Furthermore, he provides training for local players in cartography, waste management, sanitation, etc.
