Dahdaleh research fellow and Humanitarian Water Lab lead, Dr. Syed Imran Ali, was quoted in the Washington Post on the public health consequences of the collapse of water and sanitation systems in Gaza under Israeli bombardment and siege. The article entitled “Why Gaza has so little water” reports the daily struggles that Palestinians in the embattled territory face seeking the barest minimum of water for their families, and the public health consequences that follow from this essential service being cut off.

At the Humanitarian Water Lab at the Dahdaleh Institute, Dr. Ali leads research on water and public health in humanitarian crises, including the development of technologies to support humanitarian responders like the Safe Water Optimization Tool (SWOT), as well as teaching Humanitarian Engineering to engineering and humanitarian professionals and graduate students.
