Sir Robert Hadfield Building
I completed my PhD in environmental engineering at Aalborg University in Denmark in 2008 where I also studied for a five year MEng in environmental engineering, graduating in 2005. My PhD was entitled “Hydrogen sulphide induced concrete corrosion of sewer networks” and was carried out within the Sewer Processes and Networks research group.
After completing my PhD, I took a position as Postdoctoral researcher here at the University of Sheffield first to work on a project entitled “Microbiology in Urban Water Systems”. And later on the project “Deploying synthetic biology in the water industry”
In 2011 I was awarded a lectureship here in Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering. Throughout my employment at University of Sheffield I have been a member of the Pennine Water Group.
