I am a researcher, project manager, and educator interested in the environment, water, and sanitation in high-income and low-income countries alike.
I am a doctoral student in sociology at University of California – Santa Cruz. My current research evaluates social equity and environmental sustainability around urban water and sanitation systems in the United States and Europe. In my free time, I am technical advisor for Public Hygiene Lets Us Stay Human working for public restrooms in North America. I finished a Master of Science degree at Oregon State University with a focus on Water Resources Policy and Management.
I grew up in East Tennessee in the United States. My passion lies in watershed studies. My experiences with governmental and non-governmental organizations are diverse: environmental education in Tennessee; sustainable agriculture and forest restoration in Central America; water-right permits in Washington; citizen-science and groundwater in Oregon; gender, water, and sanitation in India; and urban sociology in France.
