I am a chemical engineer turned social scientist.
Whilst studying for a PGDip in Sanitation for Development I became interested in social sciences, particularly around sanitation provision, energy access and behaviour change. I am undertaking an interdisciplinary PhD where I am investigating the role that toilet-liked anaerobic digestion can play in creating sustainable rural futures. I am focussing particularly on the cultural barriers that arise from using biogas for cooking derived from human excreta as a feedstock. My work is currently focused in Nepal and India.
