Engineering

I have completed a MSc in Environmental Engineering at Newcastle University with a dissertation on Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment for the use of biosolids in agriculture in Uganda. The final result is an estimated of risk for infection and a series of suggestions on management practices. This project is developed in partnership with the Swedish University of Agricultural Science and Makerere University.
Since September 2019 I am a research assistant at the university on a 5 year project on water security. This position is giving me the possibility of better understanding the connection between climate-water systems-society at different dimensional scales.
