This blog is primarily a space to update my thoughts and opinions on various issues in International Development, but as it serves as my professional link to the world, I would also like to take this page to explain the main project I will be working on and focusing on for the next year or two: Solar Disinfection, or SODIS.
I have written several papers on the topic of water disinfection for human consumption already, and I am currently working on writing my honours thesis on the topic of why SODIS is currently so underutilised as a means to eradicating deaths by preventable water-borne diseases.
Nov. 8th 2010
I have finished my honours thesis on SODIS and graduated from McGill in June!
Currently I am living in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and plan to continue my studies at Simon Fraser University next September (2011). In the meantime, I am working to pay back some of my student loans, continuing to rewrite drafts of my thesis with my supervisor for (hopefully) eventual publication, and searching for interesting volunteer opportunities in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.
Whether you have suggestions for where to spend my volunteer hours, work or internship opportunities you think I might be interested in, comments or questions about the blog or my thesis – please feel free to contact me!
If you leave a comment below, I will receive it directly in my email and reply individually to you as soon as possible. (Please leave contact information if you wish me to send a reply! I can delete it off the website upon request, and it won’t show up on the site until I make it visible.)
Thanks for your support!
