Elisabet  Andrés Garcia (Project C1.3) and Tanveer Adyel (Project C4.1) continue the trend of CRCWSC PhD researchers earning recognition for their work.

Elisabet was recently awarded the University of Queensland Graduate School International Travel Award. This award provides funds for higher degree candidates to enhance the quality of their research and develop skills for their post-candidature career. She will use her travel grant to take the water sensitive cities message to Leiden University in the Netherlands. There she will visit the ICLON Institute to further develop her teaching expertise in higher education. She also plans to visit UNESCO-IHE and the Technical University Delft to discuss their urban water cycle management research and to share her PhD project with their groups.

Meanwhile Tanveer Adyel has picked up two international conference awards:

  • Best student poster award, under the theme: Water for liveability and resilience at the 2016 Water Convention, Singapore. This poster was entitled, “A multifunctional, multi-compartment constructed wetland to support urban waterway restoration.”
  • Award for Excellent Oral Presentation by Young Scholars at the 2016 INTECOL International Wetland Conference, Changshu, China. This presentation was entitled, “Comparative assessment of nutrient attenuation in constructed wetlands during episodic stormwater pulses.”

Congratulations to both PhD students.
