SCIENTIFIC EXPERIENCE Since 2009
I conduct research related to:
• soil microorganisms growth,
• soil physics and water uptake by plants,
• creating artificial soil with enhanced agrophysical properties,
• indicators of water pollution in lakes and rivers,
• wastewater sludge utilization,
• emerging organic pollutants removal from aquatic systems,
• bacterial community structure of activated sludge and similar environments,
• sustainable wastewater treatment in cold climate countries.
My PhD dissertation is related to constructed wetlands and comprises theoretical and practical research of the complex of physical, chemical and biological treatment processes in wetlands including modern methods of molecular biology and bioinformatics.
