My research focuses on the development of community and health facility based intervention approaches for reducing enteric infections through promoting hand washing with soap and water treatment, and identifying environmental transmission routes for enteric infections including cholera and shigellosis.

The ultimate objective is to develop effective evidence based water, sanitation, and hygiene interventions that can be brought to scale to reduce disease burden globally.
