Research Interests

Exploring emerging pathways for the peaceful promotion of access to food, sanitation, and clean water as human rights.

  • Can we make the best of a globalized world where it is more common to own a mobile phone than to have access to a secure source of water?
  • Can existing infrastructure be used grow inclusive worldwide networks for recording, reporting, and responding to environmental data?
  • What roles do citizen science, hydroinformatics, the maker culture, and STEM education play in realizing a democratic resource management future?
