Amy is a PhD student in Civil & Environmental Engineering with a focus in environmental fluid dynamics.  After earning her BS in Civil Engineering at Gonzaga University, she turned her studies to the complex interplay between hydrology and health.  Her current research seeks to better understand the relationship between diarrheal diseases and their environmental pathways in south Asia through usage of remote sensing.  Future projects will also observe the increase in water- and vector-borne illness as a result of hydrological changes subsequent natural disaster and conflict.  She is also interested in the ways in which climate change has and will change the incidence of disease in developing communities and how gender influences a community's relationship with sanitation.
