I am a post-doctoral researcher on the Pathways to Equitable Healthy Cities project, a large international consortium project funded by the UK Wellcome Trust that aims to advance the science that underpins sustainable urban development and healthier lives.
My research explores designing a water consumption monitoring strategy using citizen science-based data collection techniques to better understand water consumption patterns, water quality, and related public health outcomes among different socio-economic groups in Sub-Saharan Africa and thereby inform future water management policy-making.
This work builds on my PhD research with EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Civil Engineering under the supervision of Prof Templeton and Dr Onof. My PhD investigated whether citizen science could be used as a tool to assess intermittent water supply systems in data-scarce settings. The greater aim of the research was to assist stakeholders in developing countries make better informed decisions on water supply management by providing them with data that would otherwise be too laborious and costly to obtain.
I also contribute to the Oxfam and Water for People / Royal Academy of Engineering Research Chair in Global Sanitation Technology https://www.globalsantech.org/
I am a representative of the postdoctoral researchers and fellows of the Civil and Environmental Department at Imperial College, as well as a departmental First Aider.
