      Dr. Kayser comes to us from the Water Institute in the Gillings School of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she served as a postdoctoral research associate for five years. She has a PhD and Master’s degree from Tufts University, where she focused her studies in development economics and global health. Her undergraduate degree is from Cornell University in Policy Analysis. Her 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 government, international organization and private funding sources. She joins the Division of Global Health in FMPH as a project scientist.

      Her research in WaSH has a strong focus in global health, maternal and child health, human rights, health disparities, and environmental health. Current research projects include a cross-sectional study in Sub-Saharan Africa on WaSH in health facilities, a longitudinal study on WaSH and nutrition in Ethiopia, and a retrospective cohort study of water safety plans (a management strategy for reducing risk to water quality in drinking water systems) in Spain and France.
