Her interest in appropriate technologies for developing countries and their water issues, as well as water policy issues, inspired her to apply for UNU-INWEH’s ELE Programme.

She will be focusing on water-related disaster impacts on health. She will also be contributing to the GCRF GlobalSeaweedSTAR project and the Water-Migration focused initiative in the Congo region.
