Christiana studied Engineering at the University of Cambridge, specializing in Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering. She has then moved on the CDT in Future Infrastructure and the Built Environment, in the Engineering Department, for her MRes and PhD. Her research investigates the relationship between water and sanitation infrastructure in rural developing areas, and how gender relates to activities performed by men and women and the use of infrastructure within WASH. The current case study has been Uganda, while visits to Peru and India were also made to inform the research.
