Plenary Speakers
(In alphabetic order)
Rice University, USA

*Title (Tentative):
Nanotechnology-Enabled Water Treatment: A Vision to Enable Decentralized Water Treatment and Address Growing Challenges of the Water Energy Nexus
* Pedro J.J. ALVAREZ
(Rice University, USA)

Pedro J.J. Alvarez is the George R. Brown Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Rice University, where he also serves as Director of the NSF ERC on Nanotechnology-Enabled Water Treatment (NEWT). His research interests include environmental implications and applications of nanotechnology, bioremediation, fate and transport of toxic chemicals, water footprint of biofuels, water treatment and reuse, and antibiotic resistance control. Pedro received the B. Eng. Degree in Civil Engineering from McGill University and MS and Ph.D. degrees in Environmental Engineering from the University of Michigan. He is the 2012 Clarke Prize laureate and also won the 2014 AAEES Grand Prize for Excellence in Environmental Engineering and Science. Past honors include President of AEESP, the AEESP Frontiers in Research Award, the WEF McKee Medal for Groundwater Protection, the SERDP cleanup project of the year award, the Brown and Caldwell lifetime achievement award for site remediation, and various best paper awards with his students. Pedro currently serves on the advisory board of NSF Engineering Directorate and as Associate Editor of Environmental Science and Technology. He was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2018.
Eawag-Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, Switzerland

*Title (Tentative):
Oxidation Processes in Water Treatment: Are We on Track?
* Urs Von GUNTEN
(Eawag-Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, Switzerland)

Urs von Gunten has a joint appointment between Eawag, the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology and the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) where he is a full professor. He is an internationally recognized expert on oxidation processes with a strong focus on kinetic and mechanistic studies including micropollutant abatement and transformation product formation, evolution of disinfection/oxidation by-products, inactivation of microorganisms and the role of matrix components in these processes. He has co-authored a book on ozone chemistry and more than 225 publications in peer reviewed journals. He has received several international awards among them the distinction of being listed as a Highly Cited Researcher in 2014, 2015 and 2018. Besides his academic activities, he collaborates regularly with practitioners from the water sector; from 2004-2008 he was the head of the trans-disciplinary project “Water supply for the 21st century” and from 2013-2016 he was the head of the trans-disciplinary project “Regional Water Supply Basel-Country”, one of the Swiss cantons (states). In these projects he is interested in the implementation of his research in water practice. One example of this approach is demonstrated by his strong involvement in the application of ozone for enhanced municipal wastewater treatment for micropollutant abatement, which is now implemented in full-scale in Switzerland.
University of California, Berkeley, USA

*Title (Tentative):
Trace Organic Contaminants in a One Water World
* David L. SEDLAK
(University of California, Berkeley, USA)

David Sedlak is the Plato Malozemoff Professor in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of California at Berkeley. He is also the Co-Director of the Berkeley Water Center and Deputy Director of the NSF engineering research center for Reinventing the Nation’s Urban Water Infrastructure (ReNUWIt). He has been studying trace organic contaminants in the urban water cycle for 25 years and was co-chair of the 2009 Micropol Conference in San Francisco. He has served on the USEPA’s Science Advisory Board for Drinking Water, the State of California’s Expert Advisory Panel for Direct Potable Water Reuse and is currently a member of the National Academies’ Water Science & Technology Board. He is an elected member of the US National Academy of Engineering and recipient of numerous awards including the Paul Busch Award for Innovation in Applied Water Quality Research and the Clarke Prize for Excellence in Water Research. Sedlak is the author of Water 4.0: The Past, Present and Future of the World’s Most Vital Resource and serves as editor-in-chief of the ACS journals, Environmental Science & Technology and Environmental Science & Technology Letters.
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
*Title (Tentative):
Advanced Techniques for Non-Targeted Analyses
* Shane A. SNYDER
(Nanyang Technological University, Singapore)

Dr. Shane Snyder is a Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering and is the Executive Director of the Nanyang Environment & Water Research Institute (NEWRI) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore. He joined NTU after serving as a Professor of Chemical & Environmental Engineering and the co-Director of the Water & Energy Sustainable Technology (WEST) Center at the University of Arizona, USA. For over 20 years, Dr. Snyder’s research has focused on the identification, fate, and health relevance of emerging water pollutants. Dr. Snyder and his teams have published over 200 manuscripts and book chapters on emerging contaminant analysis, treatment, and toxicology. He currently serves as an editor-in-chief for the international journal Chemosphere. He is a Fellow of the International Water Association and a member of the World Health Organization’s Drinking Water Advisory Panel.
