Daniel Gallagher

I am a PhD candidate at MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning. I am affiliated with the International Development Group and the Environmental Policy and Planning Group. My dissertation examines how the re-politicization of water law is impacting urban governance and the global water industry. My fieldwork under this project (in Chile, Spain and France) is supported by the Social Science Research Council (SSRC), the Martin Foundation and the MIT Chile Program. For several years I worked professionally on issues related to water and climate change with the United Nations, Engineers Without Borders, and several development organizations in Latin America. I hold Master's degrees in sustainable development (Cambridge, '12) and civil engineering (Glasgow, '08).
