Hello! Welcome to the Brown Lab at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. We study water and sanitation technologies, environmental health microbiology, and the role of infrastructure in protecting public health and well-being. Our current work includes the use of fecal waste streams in public health surveillance; the development and application of novel tools to track pathogens in environmental media; and observational and experimental studies to estimate the effects of water, sanitation and hygiene interventions in controlling the transmission of infectious diseases.
