I am a researcher and engineer living in Boulder, CO. I study water, sanitation & hygiene programming in developing communities using systems analysis with the Global Projects and Organizations research group at the University of Colorado Boulder. In my current position, I conduct field-based group model building activities and systems analysis as a research assistant for the USAID-funded Sustainable WASH Systems Learning Partnership, with partner organizations in Ethiopia, Uganda, Cambodia and Kenya.
I previously served on the Leadership Team of the Mortenson Center for Engineering in Developing Communities and continue to support the advancement of the Center's objectives and activities. I am also one of the principal organizers of the Colorado WASH Symposium and EDC Speaker Series at CU Boulder.
I hold M.S. and B.S. degrees in Civil Systems and Civil & Environmental Engineering and have over a decade of water, wastewater and architectural design experience.
In addition to my academic work I run an independent design consultancy - Spacebarn.
