Jeff is a PhD student in the Environmental Engineering & Science program. He is interested in quantifying the impacts of difficult-to-quantify things, with special interest on integrating GIS and GPS technologies and methods from other disciplines to enhance his research ability. His past projects have included quantifying the effect of using different metrics for measuring household water access and examining the role of water point distance on perceived energy expenditure, both in Nampula, Mozambique. Currently, he is working to quantify the impacts of drought events on food security, water supply, and household education in Mozambique.
