THE RED DOOR TEAM
We are a team of researchers from different institutions that work together to improve health in New Zealand. We are specialists in the disciplines of epidemiology, analytical chemistry, molecular biology, indigenous knowledge, hydroinformatics, urban infrastructure and political theory.
We work with researchers from all around the world, but our main offices are in NZ. The Red Door head office is housed in the new University of Auckland, Faculty of Science Building.
We also have offices at Massey University, SHORE & Whariki Research Centre, College of Health. Our South Island office is at ESR’s Christchurch Science Centre.
Sam has a PhD in urban water management. He spent a year working as a consultant hydrologist and six years as a consultant for the private/government sector on the politics of transitions to more sustainable urban water. Sam joined the University of Auckland in 2009 as a lecturer in Environmental Science. This cross-sector background underpins an trans-disciplinary interest in the politics of more sustainable infrastructure. His research focusses on water sensitive practices, post-politics, water-infrastrure and, more recently, wastewater-based epidemiology and the ethics of privacy.
