I have always been fascinated by interdisciplinary work, be it on the edges between disciplines, in the interface between pure and applied research, or between academia and the public and private sectors. In my role as the Institute’s Research and Impact Officer, I am responsible for promoting, coordinating and communicating interdisciplinary research and societal impact on key water challenges.

Please contact me if you want to learn more about the work of the Water Research Institute or about how you can become involved.
