Anju Ayillyath – ESR 5 – Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Development of a wastewater re-use exposure model based on produce consumption

Anju completed her M.Tech degree in environmental engineering from National Institute of Technology Karnataka, India and B.Tech degree in civil engineering from Government Engineering College Thrissur, India. She had worked on projects ranging from soil characterization to the study of contaminant transport modeling. She worked on a project aimed at removal of herbicides 2, 4-D and Dicamba in water using aluminium from laterite soil as nonferrous Fenton catalyst for her master thesis. During her various projects and course of study, she has learnt the fundamentals of environmental chemistry, soil science, contaminant transport modeling, environmental biotechnology, environmental quality monitoring, environmental impact assessment, water and wastewater treatment, advanced oxidation processes, numerical modeling etc.

Starting May 2019, Anju is a PhD student in the Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment at Hebrew university of Jerusalem as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network ECORISK2050. Her research work will focus on wastewater reuse farming systems and fate and transport of chemicals in agricultural environment.
