In 2019-2020, I worked on a research report for Engineering for Change. Specifically, we are conducted research into the state of Engineering for Global Development in North America.
The research we are looking to includes Water, Health, Infrastructure, Transportation, Habitat, and Sanitation. Specifically, we are looking for research that pertains to these sectors in developing countries. The paper and report were presented at the Impact Engineered Conference in October 2019, and the publication is available here.
