EJWP4Participant

I am Aleksandra – a Research Assistant at the Faculty of Sciences, University of Novi Sad, Serbia. In more detail, I work at the Chair of Chemical Technology and Environmental Science as a member of the Wastewater treatment group.

Studying Environmental Science at the Faculty of Sciences helped me to dive deeper into the water field. Understanding the impacts of climate change on water quality and quantity started to drive my will to further learn more about wastewater treatment. During my PhD studies I was working on the investigation of additional (re)use of various industrial solid wastes and by-products as catalysts of the advanced oxidation process. Which can be used in the tertiary wastewater treatment of recalcitrant organic pollutants. In this way, it can be said that I have implemented industrial symbiosis principle. This is not enough, so I strive to learn more and to further develop research with water reclamation as its focus. All that for ensuring circularity in the techno-water system.

This 2022 has been busy for me, besides PhD defense, I’ve had the opportunity to work on my laboratory and soft skills while being an External Consultant for the Purdue University project realized in Kenya. Also, I’ve started to work more on my graphical design skills, as a hobby, and some of my works were used as a book cover and text add-on illustrations. And now, I have joined the EJWP4 group! I am looking forward to work on water-related problems with diverse young enthusiasts in the next two years, to collaborate and expand our networks.
