Project Chlorine Disinfection Systems For Low Income Urban Areas: Bangladesh, Stanford University

Principal Investigator:

Little work has been done to explore intermediate options between promoting household point-of-use (POU) water treatment technologies (treating drinking water in the home) and expensive city-wide networked water treatment (piped water to individual households). The project addresses this technology gap by developing and evaluating low-cost, in-line chlorination systems that can reduce contamination of drinking water in low-income areas of Dhaka, Bangladesh. This project is in collaboration with Dr.

Project Rural Health and Development At the Food Water Nexus: Kenya, Civil Environmental Enginering Dept., Stanford University

Principal Investigator:

This project will explore water-nutrition-health interconnections and will serve as a stepping stone toward the development of theoretical and experimental paradigms linking water, agriculture, and health. The broad goals of the project are 1) to investigate the interactions between household productive and domestic water use, nutritional outcomes, and infectious disease, and 2) to identify local interventions and policy responses that are likely to improve overall health outcomes.

Project Promoting population-wide programs to prevent chronic disease in low-income countries, Ministry of Health of Paraguay, National University of Paraguay

Principal Investigator:

Collaborate with health officials, scientists, community organizations, and residents of Paraguay to initiate a culturally-tailored set of programs and strategies aimed at reducing noncommunicable diseases in Paraguay. This program is part of the Stanford Healthy Aging & Technology Solutions (HARTS) laboratory's "borderless health promotion" initiative.

Project SINOPROBE in western Tibet: the Karakoram Fault, Stanford and SINOPROBE

Principal Investigator:

We have partnered with SinoProbe, the Chinese national scientific program led by CAGS (Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences) to study the lithosphere. We are helping to design experiments and analyze and interpret the resultant near-vertical and wide-angle seismic profiles across the Karakoram Fault (and elsewhere in Tibet).

Project INDEPTH (International Deep Profiling of Tibet and the Himalaya), Stanford and Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences

Principal Investigator:

Project INDEPTH (International Deep Profiling of Tibet and the Himalaya) is a multidisciplinary geophysical and geological investigation of the Himalayas and Tibet. Field projects associated with INDEPTH I, II, and III took place between 1992-2000 and covered Southern to Central Tibet. INDEPTH IV’s field season began in May/June 2007 with the acquisition of an active source seismic profile in NE Tibet.

Previous seismic studies have significantly elucidated the response of Asia to the impact of the Indian subcontinent from Southern to Central Tibet.
