WestWater Hosts Visiting Water Market Scholar From Nation University of Singapore

WestWater Research has invited collaborating researcher and Ph.D. Candidate Maitreyee Mukherjee to spend time with the firm’s Arizona office this Fall.

Maitreyee’s Ph.D. thesis aims to examine ways of implementing water market principles to improve urban water resource management, focusing on two key motivations- efficient resource allocation and sustainable use.

With a background in biosciences and environmental management, Maitreyee Mukherjee’s interests lie broadly in the area of environmental policies. Her prior work exposure as a research associate at the Institute of Water Policy, NUS had included projects in urban water management, water pricing, river basin management, and pollution governance in large water bodies.

Beyond academics, Ms. Mukherjee’s passion lies in traveling, hiking, exploring new places, swimming, gardening, along with spending quality family time. Being an Indian, she also harbors an inherent love for food, people and diverse cultures.

Ms. Mukherjee holds an MSc. In Environmental Management from the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore (NUS).
