Anna Mittag is a junior studying chemical engineering and poverty studies with research interests in environmental justice, public health, and human rights. Mittag specifically hopes to link these issues through involvement in the field of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH).
This year, Mittag is working with Professor Ellis Adjei Adams of the Keough School of Global Affairs, assisting him with his research focusing on human water interactions in the global south. She is currently contributing to projects revolving around farmer-herder conflicts, resource insecurity, and maternal/newborn health relating to WASH. Her roles in these projects consist mainly of literature reviews, qualitative data analysis, and draft revisions. As she continues her research through ISP, Mittag looks forward to learning more about the intersectionality of water scarcity and complex issues regarding health, gender, education, politics, and the environment.
