SEP Group is participating in the exhibition “Science on Your Plate” at the Mühlerama Museum for Food Culture in Zurich, with the project “Understanding the effects of irrigation modernization in water resources management – citrus production in the Jucar river basin, Spain”. Come and visit us on June 1st (from 18:00 until 21:00) at the event “Meet the Scientist”.
Welcome to our guest Xueyi Zhang from Hohai University! He will stay 1.5 years. We wish him a good time!
Sandra Pool's paper on the impact of irrigation modernization on groundwater recharge and nitrogen leaching under variable climatic conditions, in collaboration with colleagues from the Technical University of Valencia, is now published in Science of the Total Environment.
Ishaan Markale's paper on the control of liquid-liquid mixing on liquid-solid reactions such as adsorption in porous media, published in Transport in Porous Media.
Andres Velasquez's paper, with collaborators at the University of Rennes, on the control of phases saturation on fluid flow velocities in porous media, published in Geophysical Research Letter.
A review on how pore-scale processes control biomineralization and suggestions on how to tame it published in Reviews in Environmental Science and Biotechnology. This has been a collaboration with Jen Nguyen (University of British Columbia) and Dani Or (Desert Research Institute).
It is a great honor to be part of the competence center World Food System Center. Looking forward to contributing to sustainability and food security from a water resources angle!
The podcast aims at young women to inform and motivate them to get into engineering. If you are curious about why Dorothee Kurz studied Bioprocess engineering, why she chose to switch university for her Master degree or what in retrospect she would have done differently, listen in! For non-German speakers: The Podcast is in German – you can either practise your recent acquired German skills or Dorothee is happy to give you a short summary in English.
Marta Llamas, PhD student from University of Malaga (Spain), will join us for several months to work on mixing processes at catchment scale. Welcome Marta!
