Professor Carolini’s research and teaching at MIT interrogates how the governance of the financial architecture behind infrastructure systems, especially in the water and sanitation sectors, matters to the distributional fairness of a system’s benefits and, ultimately, the health of communities.  Her empirical focus centers on examinations of how public sector accounting, budgeting, financing, project evaluation, and partnerships entailed in water and sanitation systems shape the quality of life and health of some of the most marginalized groups across North America, Latin America, and Sub-Saharan Africa.  Gabriella’s work has been published in journals including the International Journal of Urban and Regional Research, Urban Studies, Environment and Planning C, The Lancet, and the American Journal of Public Health, among others.
