The end seems near

More secondments and conferences

In the second half of the summer, I finished my last secondment in Copenhagen and presented my research at another prestigious conference in Greece.

After the last NaToxAq Ph.D. school in June, I now also finished my last secondment in Copenhagen at Krüger A/S (Veolia Water Technologies). During the two months at Krüger A/S, I had the chance to learn more about the work of a water process engineer, share my knowledge and research with experts from the industry, visit Denmark’s only surface water-fed treatment plant and take samples from Lake Tissø near Kalundborg (polish your Danish and read a news story about my secondment posted by Krüger A/S on their linkedin homepage). During the secondment, I also visited the Copenhagen-based NaToxAq family at the University of Copenhagen and University College of Copenhagen.

Visiting Denmark’s only surface water-fed treatment plant with Florian Wagner (Krüger A/S, secondment supervisor), Carina Schönsee (ESR9) and Natasa Skrbic (ESR13) (left picture) and taking samples from Lake Tissø with Florian (taking picture), Natasa, Carina and Søren Radoor (Kalundborg Forsyning) (right picture).

Right after I came back from Copenhagen, I traveled to Rhodes, Greece, to attend the 16th International Conference on Environmental Science and Technology (CEST 2019), where I once again shared my research outcomes with experts and interested parties from all around the globe. Besides talking science and advertising the NaToxAq conference, I got to enjoyed the beautiful Island of Rhodes.

Now, I am back at RECETOX, finalizing and submitting papers, and continuing with my experimental work in the lab.
