Part 3 - Forum on Circular Water Economy at NYU with WEF:

Welcome back SDG Talkers!! Thanks for joining us for another episode of highlighting change makers and their inspirational work towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)!

Thanks for joining us for our mini series recorded at the Forum on Circular Water Economy hosted at NYU in partnership with the Water Environment Federation and the NYU Department of Civil and Urban Engineering.

In This Mini Series: You'll hear from students attending:

  • Manhattan College
  • Columbia University
  • NYU
  • The University of Missouri

Hear from Gnanaraj Augustine, a Graduate Research Assistant at Columbia University.

Gnanaraj recently earned his M.S.-Ph.D. in Earth and Environmental Engineering degree from Columbia, and is now working on 1) quantifying the emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) from wastewater treatment facilities in aerobic and anoxic zones; and 2) characterizing the emission caused by microbial activity within the treatment facility.

While an undergrad, Gnanaraj incorporated sustainability into cutting-edge technologies to improve the need for current water quality technology and worked on projects that center on wastewater quality and treatment methods. He has a strong interest in climate change and water quality systems, and enjoys learning new things - with a particular interest in microbiology, GHG climate change, water and wastewater - plus taking advantage of the numerous research opportunities that are made accessible to him. So take a listen to find out what he's currently researching!

Let’s get SDG Talking!!
