We are happy to announce that Josh’s Water Jobs has two new team members! After almost five years, with the platform ready to take a leap, we’re pleased to add Hannah Hilbert-Wolf and Joshua Amaitum Elukut to the team. You can find out more about them below:
Hannah Hilbert-Wolf, PhD – Project Officer
Hannah Hilbert-Wolf has a PhD in Geology (James Cook University, Australia) and a MSc in Innovation, Human Development, and Sustainability (University of Geneva, Switzerland). Her ambitions are to contribute to the just and sustainable development of natural resources, particularly water, and communities, and she believes that evidence-based solutions and equitable cooperation are key tools to achieve this. Hannah combines her experience in both the natural and social sciences to positively contribute to sustainable human development.
In addition to research and teaching roles in academia, Hannah has worked as a STEM Careers professional and Science Communicator in Western Australia. Recently, Hannah interned with the Geneva Water Hub, a think tank and policy institute focused on hydropolitics for peace and security, where she worked on projects relating to dams and hydrodiplomacy, imparting her with a passion for peace building and a keen interest in water-related challenges. She joined the JWJ team in 2021 with the aim to help JWJ achieve their goal of closing the gender and human resources gap in the water and sanitation community.
