Student at University of Miami, Eliza Stuart, presented her research titled “Spatial Analysis of Household Water Insecurity in Rural Uganda” mentored by Dr. Justin Stoler and Dr. Amber Pearson. Eliza is a University of Miami College of Arts & Sciences Summer Research Fellow and rising star! In her research, she found spatial heterogeneity in household water insecurity experiences, suggesting that single-solution interventions may not yield as many benefits as expected. Perhaps more tailored water-related interventions could account for diverse local and household needs, thereby reducing insecurity more equitably.

Dr. Pearson attended the "Connecting the Dots between Climate Change, Water Insecurity, and Migration" workshop held at the University of Miami
During March 2020, Dr. Pearson was invited to the "Connecting the Dots between Climate Change, Water Insecurity, and Migration” workshop hosted at the University of Miami. The workshop was a part of the HWISE research-coordinating network and was led by Dr. Justin Stoler, an associate professor of geography and public health sciences at the University of Miami. The workshop focused on analyzing how migration decisions may be linked to access to water and accelerated by climate change.
