Ryan uses data science and systems approaches to identify opportunities to address ‘wicked’ environmental health engineering problems in low-resource settings. He is particularly interested in using research findings and knowledge products to improve policy and practice decision making.
Carmen is a Medical Geographer who uses holistic approaches to water security, human health and health systems. She applies mixed methods, multi-level approaches and incorporates multidisciplinary perspectives in complex, data-scarce settings. She is interested in the dual health burden during and after emergencies, promoting health in water and wetland management, the cultural context of health, capturing local knowledge, and translating research for the use of policy-makers and practitioners.
Musa is a Water and Environmental Engineer whose research focuses on improving planning, monitoring, and implementation of Sanitation and Faecal sludge management practices in the global south. He realizes this through pathogen and Faecal hazard tracking in communities; life-cycle costing of water and sanitation programmes; optimization and application of sustainable human excreta, wastewater and solid waste management technologies to achieve effective pathogen inactivation and resource recovery.
Elizabeth Christenson-Diver has a MS and PhD in environmental science grounded in public health and brings an understanding of community-based participatory research. Elizabeth incorporates interdisciplinary data using tools from GIS, applied microbiology, and hydrology to design and implement research. Her work has focused on global WaSH security and resilience, disparate access to WaSH, and microbial water quality. Elizabeth’s PhD used epidemiological principles to understand the effects of commercial hog operations on microbial surface water quality.
