Session: Plenary Session 3 Arsenic in drinking water: navigating towards positive water futures

Dr. ir. Doris van Halem is Associate Professor at Delft University of Technology in the field of drinking water treatment. Her research group focusses on understanding removal mechanisms (including, pathogens, metals, anti-biotic resistance) to support a global transition to accessible and sustainable water technologies. As scientific director of TU Delft’s Global Drinking Water Program (www.tudelft.nl/globaldrinkingwater) Dr. van Halem is responsible for the drinking water research in and with the Global South. Within this framework, she is initiator of the African Water Corridor (www.africanwatercorridor.org) and spin-off www.iwash.org, co-creation projects between TU Delft and African partners along Development Corridors.

Dr. van Halem has an MSc and PhD in Civil Engineering and Geosciences (2007 and 2011, both cum laude) and received the Gijs Oskam award and Steven Hoogendijk award for her MSc and PhD thesis, respectively. In 2016, she obtained the UNESCO-L’OREAL For Women in Science award, which allowed her to become research fellow at KNAW NIAS. Recently she was granted the prestigious NWO Vidi grant to start strengthen her research group, specifically focusing on arsenic removal from groundwater.
