This PhD fellowship is available at the Department of Environmental Engineering , and its main objective is set to Modelling the Fate and Optimizing the Removal of Selected Xenobiotic Organic Micro-Pollutants from Point and Network Water Sources. The selection and development of, for instance, antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the environment is one of the greatest concerns with regard to the use of antimicrobials – a potential threat to public health.
The outcome of this project contributes:
(i) to improve the assessment of the expected environmental impact,
(ii) assist the regional decision making process to optimize pollution control;
(iii) develop robust control strategies, including advanced chemical processes combined with biological systems.
The high number of pharmaceuticals and the wide variety of biodegradation and speciation processes characteristic to these compounds require the development of a modelling framework – an aim that this fellowship advocates.
