About Me

Elizabeth Hameeteman is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Technische Universität Berlin. She obtained her PhD in History at Boston University in 2022. Her dissertation, titled “Pipe Parity: Desalination, Development, and the Global Quest for Water in the 1950s and 1960s,” explored the role of desalination as a seemingly viable adaptation strategy to reduce the impact of water scarcity and climate variability in the post-World War II period. Originally from the Netherlands, Elizabeth has a background in Law and American Studies. She is also the founder of Environmental History Now, an award winning online platform that showcases the environment-related work and expertise of graduate students and early career scholars who identify as women, trans and/or nonbinary.
