MSc Sustainable Development

Department Sanitation, Water and Solid Waste for Development

About Me

I specialise in sanitation and wastewater management solutions for development. My main research interest centres interdisciplinary research on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in institutional settings (health care, schools, public, community and shared sanitation); urban infrastructure delivery in informal settlements; sustainable operation and maintenance of WASH delivery services combined with information technology management. I am interested in contributing to bridging the science-policy gap by generating evidence-based knowledge that allow informed-decision making. This includes the development of application-oriented knowledge products and training materials for practitioners who are dealing with challenging public health contexts around the globe. I have a BA in Contemporary History and Philosophy and an interdisciplinary MSc in Sustainable Development with a focus on social sciences. I am a member of the Strategic Environmental Sanitation Planning Group at Sandec since 2017.
