The time and space of water and health: an interview with Carmen Anthonj, PhD

Press/Media: Other


Carmen Anthonj is a natural connector. Her profession as a medical geographer says it all. Connecting topics, people, disciplines, and methods, Carmen lives the first law of geography, “everything is related to everything else.” Carmen sees and studies those relations with a keen eye and endless enthusiasm. We caught up with Carmen over a coffee (wine in her time zone) and conversation shortly after she transitioned from UNC Postdoctoral Research Associate and lead communicator of the HWTS Network to Assistant Professor at ITC at the University of Twente.
