Research Interests

Diarrhoeal diseases are a major contributor to the global burden of disease. Designing appropriate drinking water systems and wastewater reuse schemes requires understanding of the risk from environmental transport of human and animal pathogens.  The details of any DPhil project would be defined in discussion with the student, but are likely to entail a significant component of laboratory or fieldwork to improve the understanding of environmental transport and fate of pathogens, and modelling of the risks to human health.
