Fellows & Students
  • Kathleen “Kat” Peters
    Research Administrative Assistant
    WASH Certificate Coordinator
    Center for Global Safe WASH

    Kathleen Peters has more than 20 years of experience working in the public, private and academic sectors. She has been working in public health since 2000 and at the Rollins School of Public Health since 2007. She began working in public health at the DeKalb County Board of Health’s Center for Public Health Preparedness (2000-2006). While there, she worked with faculty and staff at the Rollins School of Public Health in the SORT program (Student Outreach and Response Team) which introduced public health students to local public health practice, including local emergency preparedness and response. The SORT program has since been adopted by RSPH and is now the Student Outbreak and Response Team. She also helped develop the DeKalb-Fulton Bioterrorism Response Plan, the “Local Heroes” public health social marketing program, assisted in the Hurricane Katrina refugee response at Dobbins AFB, and managed logistics for mock public health emergency exercises (EOCs). After leaving DCBOH, she worked with the Flour Fortification Initiative at Emory University, a global network of public, private and civic partners working to improve micronutrient malnutrition through fortification of staple foods. She currently supports the faculty and staff of the Center for Global Safe Water as the Research Administrative Assistant and the WASH Certificate Coordinator.

    **Many additional staff work at the CGSW on research projects highlighted on the research program websites of particular faculty members.**

  • Fellows and Students

     

    CGSW Fellows include the doctoral and post-doctoral trainees working with CGSW Faculty.  Their biographies and research interests are listed below. There are also many undergraduate and masters students working on research projects with CGSW Faculty.  For more information about CGSW students, please click here.

    David Berendes received his Ph.D. in Environmental Health Sciences from Emory University in August, 2016. He currently works is a post-doctoral fellow with Dr. Joe Brown at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he manages a study on vaccine efficacy in urban Maputo, Mozambique and investigates links between environmental improvements in sanitation and antimicrobial resistance in enteric organisms.

    Bethany Caruso is a post-doctoral fellow and a Research Manager for a WASH in schools program for girls supported by a joint collaboration between Emory and UNICEF (WinS4Girls). Broadly, Bethany is interested in the intersection between Women’s Health and Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) in developing countries. Specifically, she hopes to focus her doctoral work on how adolescent girls manage menstruation given their social, cultural, and natural environments, and how menstrual management may influence their behaviors and developmental (educational, economic, social) outcomes.

    Miranda Delahoy, Ph.D, was recently awarded her Ph.D. in the Environmental Health Department. She is interested in WASH epidemiology and pathways of fecal exposure.

    Courtney (Poulos) Victor, MPH received her MPH’19 Global Environmental Health with a certificate in Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene. She works with the Levy Lab group as a lab manager with background in infectious disease research, particularly on vector-borne and enteric diseases. She is interested in how water and sanitation impact the ecology of infectious diseases, particularly in resource-limited countries.

    Sheela Sinharoy, PhD is a post-doc in the Environmental Health Department. Sheela’s work focuses on impact evaluations of nutrition-sensitive interventions, with an emphasis on women’s empowerment. She is involved in studies of water and sanitation, household air pollution, and agriculture interventions in low- and middle-income countries, examining pathways of impact on nutrition outcomes.
