Research Description

My research focuses on applying and adapting quantitative sustainable design tools such as life cycle assessment and quantitative microbial risk assessment to guide decision-making for water and sanitation infrastructure. My group is interested in applications of sustainable design in both technologically advanced and resource-limited settings, with an emphasis on context-specific objectives and constraints.
