    Collapse Overview
    Dr Kayser's research explores the factors that limit the delivery of safe and sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) services and she tests specific WaSH interventions (technologies and management strategies) for their human and environmental health outcomes and their sustainability over time. Her methodological expertise is in the use of qualitative survey methods to provide formative research, and experimental, quasi-experimental and population based methods to test specific interventions. She has conducted research in over 20 countries throughout Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa with funding from government, international organizations, and private sector sources. Her recent research projects include a cross-sectional study of WaSH in health facilities and WaSH in schools in sub-Saharan Africa and a retrospective cohort study of water safety plans in Spain and France.

    Prior to UCSD, Dr. Kayser was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of North Carolina in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering in the Gillings School of Public Health. She holds a PhD from the Fletcher School at Tufts University where she concentrated in Development Economics and has a B.S. in Policy Analysis from Cornell University.
