My research focuses on sociopolitical and economic factors that shape access to resources and water use among pastoralists living in northern Tanzania. In particular, I examine the spread of waterborne pathogens, local knowledge about water quality, and how household and community-level socioeconomic and political factors influence decisions about water-contact behavior.
