I’m a civil and environmental engineer with a PhD by Imperial College, UK and an MSc in Water and Sanitation by University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Before moving to the UK, I worked 10 years for the water utility of Goias (SANEAGO) and another 10 years as a lecturer at the Federal University of Goias in Brazil. I’m Professor of Environmental Engineering at the UCL Department of Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering where I’ve worked since 2007. I’m currently the head of the Water Management Research Group and Co-Director of the Centre for Urban Sustainability and Resilience. My research lies within water and sanitation with particular interest on designing, testing, implementing technologies and tools to reduce environmental pollution and enhance human health and wellbeing. I’ve participated in multidisciplinary research that involves collaborations with other disciplines such as Chemistry, Electrochemical, Microbiology, Agriculture, Biology, Social Sciences, Art, Education and Policy.
