Bio

Veljko Prodanovic is currently working on modelling and validating the effectiveness of urban stormwater mitigation options (infrastructure and policies) on pollution levels, through exploratory and integrated model approach. During his PhD, Veljko worked on Integrated multi-functional urban water systems, focusing on the interdisciplinary challenges in delivering green sustainable urban water infrastructures capable of treating various sources of wastewater (most notably greywater and stormwater). His work involved developing and testing new green water treatment technologies such as Green walls for greywater reuse. Veljko is keen on continuing his work on developing green sustainable technologies, and currently looking for new collaborations in this field. His other past and present research topics include: stormwater quality modelling and sensitivity analysis, and design of water infrastructure. Aside from research projects, Veljko is also passionate about teaching, being involved in student mentoring (leading 8 Final Year Projects) and tutoring engineering subjects.
