Wren Tracy


Research Assistant

Wren assists in the analysis of data from a 14 country evaluation of WaSH in rural households, schools, healthcare facilities, and at community water points. Prior to joining the Water Institute at UNC, he lived and worked in Belize as a Health Education Facilitator, focusing on environmental health and WaSH, as a part of the Peace Corps program. During his time as a master’s student at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, he developed an interest in the intersection of human rights and environmental health, which has framed his work at the Water Institute. His primary research interests focus on adapting the human rights approach to WaSH and using monitoring, evaluation, and learning to encourage evidence based practice in the SDG era. Specifically, Wren is interested in equity in WaSH, humanitarian WaSH, WaSH in non-household settings and WaSH for small island developing states. Wren has field experience across Sub-Saharan Africa, Central America, and South Asia.
