Berkeley News features ERG Master’s/PhD student, Christopher Hyun, and assistant professor of political science, Dr. Alison Post, in this video on water and development research in Bangalore, India. The project is led by Dr. Alison Post and ERG associate professor, Dr. Isha Ray. Tanu Kumar, PhD candidate in political science, is also working closely with Post and Ray on the project, assessing impact at the household level. This research was prompted by the work of Nextdrop, a company started by UC Berkeley students.
