Gateway Global Mentor

Gateway Global Mentors are alumni with substantial global health
experience who are willing to provide career advice, connections and
mentoring to current Gillings students interested in a global health career.

I am an assistant professor at Georgia Tech’s School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and a proud alumnus of the Gillings School at UNC (PhD, 2007). Read More

Like many graduates of the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering, I work at the intersection of environmental engineering and public health, and I have a particular interest in underserved, low-income settings where the burden of water and sanitation-related disease is greatest. I have lived and worked in a number of countries, rich and poor, and I try to bring a global, synthetic perspective to my work.
