Her area of research focuses on environmental justice issues of access to clean water and sanitation in low-income communities domestically and internationally. Her work examines the role of power and exclusion in the production of marginalized spaces and bodies, using water as a surrogate for mapping power. Work is organized around three dimensions: critical analyses of the human-environment, integrated approaches for low-cost technologies, and community capacity building. Through this work she hopes improve data translation within marginalized communities and direct technology design and policy initiatives towards integrated, sustainable solutions for improving access to environmental resources for low-income populations.
