"You have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world"
Nadia’s eye for detail along with her human-centred and gender sensitive approaches to infrastructure design and water solutions make her an invaluable member of the FMC team. She provides technical advising and design input in WASH solutions.
Her expertise is in rural, small-scale water infrastructure and WASH. She brings a deep understanding of sustainability, appropriate technology, and intersectionality to her engineering work.
With more than 4 years of experience in water engineering in the US, Colombia, Honduras, and Ethiopia, Nadia has worked on a variety of water-related projects including river remediation, multiple-use water systems, community irrigation schemes, rainwater catchment systems, and community drinking water distribution systems. She has also worked on small-scale sanitation infrastructure.
Nadia holds a BE in Environmental Engineering from the City College of New York and an MSc in Civil Engineering from Stanford University. She has also completed a certificate in Public Health Engineering from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
Nadia has a love for the arts and is usually experimenting with jewelery design, drawing, painting, music, or any activity that allows her to express her creativity. She also loves to dance - particularly salsa, kizomba, and bellydance.
