With a background in public health, infrastructure planning, and environmental engineering, she is the faculty lead of Stanford’s Program on Water, Health & Development. Over the past 20 years Prof. Davis has carried out applied research on water supply and sanitation services in more than a dozen developing countries, including most recently Kenya, Bangladesh, and Mozambique. Her research spans scales from the household to the region, and addresses topics ranging from assessing effective demand for service improvements to developing and testing new technologies and service models. Prof. Davis has served on the UN Millennium Development Goal Task Force for Water & Sanitation, the Technical Committee of the Global Water Partnership, and the UN-sponsored working group developing post-2015 targets for global sanitation monitoring.
