Alex joined Eunomia in April 2013 after a varied career in engineering for sustainability. He originally trained as an Environmental Engineer and after a brief spell in strategy consulting and policy analysis for the UK government worked in Kenya and Uganda specializing in water, sanitation and hygiene promotion. Alongside this work he researched the health beliefs of the Batwa tribe of Southwest Uganda, helping understand why promotion of hygiene practices were failing for these displaced peoples. On returning to the UK he worked on developing ecologically sound technologies at the Centre for Alternative Technology and subsequently developed his own water and sanitation consultancy work before joining Eunomia.
