Jeroen Ensink's Background
I have a MSc in water resource management from Wageningen University in the Netherlands and completed my PhD at the Faculty of Infectious and Tropical Diseases (ITD) at the LSHTM.
From 1998 to 2006 I worked for the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam and India on projects investigating the impact of (agricultural) water management on human health.
I was employed by the LSHTM in 2006 in the Environmental Health Group and work on the use of wastewater in agriculture and broadly on the health impact of water supply and sanitation in developing countries.
