About Me

I am a doctoral student at the Urban Water Management Department under the supervision of Prof. Max Maurer (ETH Zürich) and Lisa Scholten (TU Delft). My experience focuses on the design of urban drainage systems using a deterministic approach to find the cost-optimum solution over a graph modelling framework that represents the network. Currently, I am working on a model that can generate possible transition paths (TP) from current centralised urban drainage systems towards hybrid or decentralised systems. The transition paths describe chronological and spatial systematic changes to the technical infrastructure based on structural and operational drivers. These adaptation measures need to ensure that the system will be capable to reach future requirements for the urban water infrastructure that are influenced by internal and external factors (e.g. population development, climate change, etc).

Projects

An inter- and transdisciplinary strategic research program that strives to develop novel non-gridconnected water and sani- tation systems that can function as comparable alternatives to network-based systems.
The ‘Transitions Pathways Generator’ (TPG) model aims at the systematic generation of transition pathways describing technical adaptations of the urban drainage infrastructure.
