I am an independent water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) consultant with thirteen years experience of the water sector and six years work experience of WASH. I have been working as a WASH consultant since 2010.
Clients have included: WaterAid, International Water Association (IWA)/ World Health Organisation (WHO), UNESCO-IHE, Rural Water Supply Network, the Open University and Adam Smith International. Prior to consulting, I worked in academia, at Birmingham University as a Lecturer (2005-2007) and at Cranfield University as an Academic Fellow from 2007-2010.
Whilst at Cranfield my interest and involvement with WASH development work increased as I taught on the MSc in Community Water and Sanitation and worked alongside colleagues with a wealth of experience on several interesting international projects. During my time at Cranfield, I worked with Oxfam, WHO, MedAir, Samaritans Purse, and Tearfund.
My academic qualifications include a first class BSc in geology from Aberystwyth, an MSc (with distinction) in Water Resources Technology and Management and a PhD in Wastewater process Engineering from Birmingham University.
During my time in academia I developed several training packages ranging from BSc modules to internationally published courses for the WHO. I continue to be interested in this angle of WASH work; learning how training, research and capacity building links in and influences WASH policy and practice.
