PhD program, Environmental Sciences and Engineering
Advisor: Dr. Jill Stewart

David is a PhD student researching strategies to assess exposure to microbes in the environment. He is using molecular techniques to characterize fecal contamination in the household environment in urban Maputo, Mozambique. This research will contribute to an evaluation of the effects of a shared sanitation intervention on child health. He is also developing statistical tools to predict microbial contamination at different spatial scales. David previously worked as a research assistant for the Water Institute assessing the vulnerability of water supply access to extreme weather events in the US and globally.
