Management of water and wastewater systems: towards an integrated approach

Water and wastewater networks sustain fundamental societal needs. In order to ensure that these systems operate reliably under continuous external changes, rigorous plans and management strategies must be mapped. Yet, the water and wastewater sectors are currently managed separately despite being operationally linked. There is a need to develop tools and frameworks that can aid decision-makers in conducting integrated sector planning, allowing them to identify cross-sector risks and opportunities.


This project offers an exciting opportunity to contribute such methodologies with the potential to have a notable impact, both in research terms and upon policy and practice. You will build upon existing capabilities within the OPSIS research group to create state-of-the-art models and frameworks. We work closely with partners within government and industry.


Student Profile:

You will be a highly motivated student with the capacity to make rapid progress in a challenging area of systems analysis and modelling. You must have a background in mathematics, physical sciences, engineering, computer science or other quantitative disciplines. Experience with high-level programming languages (e.g., Python, R, or MATLAB) and geospatial analysis is desirable.
