Great Outcomes for WRC Researchers
For Lisha Liu, a PhD student at WRC, the symposium was ‘a special opportunity for me to have a great insight of biosolids history by meeting biosolid legends, present my research to industry, build strong networking with industries and other PhD students in the Centre.’ Lisha’s PhD is looking at Odour Emission Modelling From Wastewater Treatment Systems. See Lisha’s HDR video here.
‘The Symposium was a success!’ said Thais Guerrero, PhD student from WRC. ‘The Symposium was a great chance to finally meet face-to-face with the other ITTC PhD students, post-docs and researchers, and the industry partners. We have been meeting online for the past year, and it was great to discuss our research and outcomes in person for the first time. I really enjoyed the conversations I had and the interest from the industry partners in my research. I am looking forward to the collaborations that will emerge from this event’. Thais’ PhD is on Land application of biosolids and odour emissions: Understanding impacts and opportunities for beneficial re-use. See Thais’ video here.
Dr Calvin He, a WRC Research Associate reflected, ‘As someone new to the field of biosolids, the Transforming Biosolids Symposium was an excellent opportunity to quickly get up to speed on the breadth of exciting research happening in all the projects of the Training Centre. It was interesting to discuss all the challenges faced by each sector of the biosolids industry, and to build connections aimed at solving those problems together. The highlight of the event for me was being able to freely converse with all the participants, from experienced industry leaders to students working on cutting-edge research. I can’t wait for the next one!” See more about Calvin’s research here.
