Areas of Interest
I am looking for new graduate students who have interest in various aspects of water resource management, environmental health, natural hazards, and/or hillslope/catchment hydrology. In particular, I am interested in exploring the risks of rural populations in developing areas to ingestion of contaminated drinking water, exposure to anthropogenic contaminants (heavy metals and pesticides), exposure water-borne pathogens (e.g., parasites, bacteria). This type of research requires extended fieldwork in foreign countries, language training, and hands-on work with local populations. The research is a multi-disciplinary balancing act, grounded in science, but with an interest in incorporating elements of human geography.
