My research project
Development of a sustainability assessment framework for asset management in the wastewater sector
My research aims to deliver a sustainability assessment tool using a multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) framework. The water and wastewater sector are facing emerging challenges which complicate the asset management and investment decisions. The development of such a MCDA based tool will facilitate the identification of the most sustainable options by integrating multiple dimensions of sustainability into one framework, and therefore, providing extra decision support for the asset decision makers.
My research interests encompass a wide environmental related topics. With a strong environmental science background, I was particularly interested in air, water and soil pollution in terms of impacts and remediations. My research appetite has expanded to the greater sustainability science and its various assessment methods as those are increasing valuable for the corporations to provide an effective CSR monitoring scheme as well as assurances to stakeholders and the wider public.
