Nick Turman-Bryant
As one of the primary data analysts for the Sustainable Water, Energy, and Environmental Technologies Lab (SWEET Lab) at Portland State, Nick spends most of his time trying to derive actionable insights from sensors that are installed on latrines, borehole pumps, handpumps, and cookstoves in Kenya, Ethiopia, and Rwanda. The near-time data from these sensors is used to monitor how latrines, pumps, and cookstoves are being used, to improve maintenance and operation of these devices, and to evaluate the impact of water, sanitation, and energy interventions.
Research: Data-driven development strategies, information and communication technologies, machine learning, sustainable energy access
