About

Established in 2017, the Duke University Center for Water, Sanitation, Hygiene and Infectious Disease (WaSH-AID) is housed in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering within the Pratt School of Engineering and is affiliated with the Nanomaterials and Thin Films Lab.

With expertise in engineering, materials science, chemistry, biology, and business, our team undertakes a broad range of interdisciplinary research.

We build partnerships to fill critical technology gaps and to increase the likelihood that user-centered technologies will advance from concept to market. We prioritize work that promotes sustainability in addressing complex global challenges and focus on technologies that are designed to be as broadly accessible as possible.
