Research Area(s)

  • Local Water Security for Health: Developing practical solutions and community-based tools for evidence-informed decision-making in rural, remote, and marginalised communities, particularly in low resources settings
  • Water, Disease, and Climate Change: Identifying and spatially analyzing burdens of disease associated with water-related diseases, understanding both social and physical dimensions affecting these patterns, and exploring climate change impacts.
  • Water and Sustainable Development: a macroscopic view of the water-health nexus demonstrates the need to account for the interconnectedness of water for life, nutrition, and livelihoods to ensure positive health and wellbeing.
