I am currently employed as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at The Centre for Water Systems (CWS), College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter. In my current role, I have worked on two EU funded projects:
1. Water4India (http://water4india.eu): This project successfully ended in August 2016. The overall objective of the Water4India project was to optimise and implement a set of technological alternatives for water supply in India. My main responsibility was to develop two decision support systems: (1) WETSUiT to assist policy makers taking the appropriate decisions to solve the existing problems with (drinking) water supply and (2) DoWET to prioritize water efficiency options/water saving devices and evaluate their overall sustainability.
2. SARASWATI (http://emps.exeter.ac.uk/saraswati.): The main objective of SARASWATI is to perform a comprehensive and independent evaluation of advanced centralized/decentralized wastewater treatment technologies and network, and hence provide key suggestions for the improvement of existing technologies. In addition, SARASWATI aims at deploying selected proven EU technologies with a potential for solving grave water challenges in India (pollution of water supply, water scarcity and groundwater depletion, unhygienic sludge handling practices due to lack of suitable technologies). My main responsibility is to develop a decision support system tool (WiSDOM) for identification and evaluation of optimal system configurations for wastewater treatment and water reuse.
