Email: Albert

Albert Nyarko-Agyei works as part of the Rights Lab’s Measurement and Geographies Programme on research to estimate the prevalence of modern slavery. These projects use a mixture of classical and novel statistical approaches. Within the Rights Lab, he has used state of the art Convolutional Neural Network training methods to detect brick kilns in India, as sites of forced labour, from satellite imagery; worked on a project to deliver the first national prevalence estimates of online sexual exploitation of children in the Philippines; and techniques for estimating the prevalences of forced child begging in Niger, among other research. He brings a wealth of statistical and software knowledge to his work with Rights Lab data, completed a Masters in Machine Learning, and is currently completing a PhD at the University of Nottingham in Geospatial Systems.
