Michael Fisher

Mike Fisher joined the Water Institute in 2012. His current work with the Institute focuses on leveraging monitoring, learning, and evaluation to maximize the impact of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WaSH) interventions. His research and fieldwork experiences have included work on developing, implementing, and evaluating technologies for low-cost water treatment and safe water access. This work has spanned rural and urban developing country settings on four continents.
